Senior Case Management

 Senior Case Manangement

Case management services provides comprehensive services so that seniors are able to live independently or with caregivers in their own homes and communities. We offer a wide variety of programs and services for older adults and their family members.

 Programs & Services

Assessment for In-home Services and Case Management A Care Coordinator will go visit an individual in his or her home to complete a comprehensive assessment. During the visit the Care Coordinator will work with the older adult to assess his or her physical, emotional, cognitive, and financial needs. From the assessment the Care Coordinator will develop a plan of care and help the individual to identify appropriate services and review costs.
Services include:

1. Homemaker/chore assistance
2. Adult day services
3. Home delivered meals
4. Transportation
5. Home repair
6. Money management
7. Emergency home response systems

The Care Coordinator will also determine if the person qualifies for the Community Care Program through the State of Illinois. Staff at Catholic Charities will assist in getting services set up and started and will keep in touch with the older person to make sure his/her needs are being met. An annual reassessment is required.

Catholic Charities provides resources, referrals and information about senior services and other programs and services utilized by older adults and their families. Information may include lists of nursing homes or assisted living facilities in the area, emergency alert system providers and many other community resources.

We also provide Options Counseling, a program to assist people to think through their long term care planning options and make decisions that best fit their needs and lifestyle.

Please notify us if special arrangements are needed for contact outside of regular business hours.


Catholic Charities investigates allegations of abuse, neglect, and exploitation of seniors or adults with disabilities, ages 18-59.  Abuse includes emotional abuse, financial exploitation, passive neglect, confinement, physical abuse and sexual abuse.

If you are aware of a possible abuse or neglect situation please call the site directly or call the APS Hotline toll free at 1-866-800-1409. All information will be kept confidential.


Through the Choices for Care Program a professional Care Coordinator provides an assessment to all individuals prior to admission into a nursing home for long term care services. This assessment is also known as the Universal Pre-Admission Screening and is required for all stays at a nursing home whether for short-term rehabilitation or long-term stays. The purpose of this assessment is to ensure that placement into a nursing home is the most appropriate and provide other long term care options and resources.


A Care Coordinator will assess an older adult in his or her home to determine if the individual is eligible for home delivered meals.  If so, the Care Coordinator will connect the individual with the appropriate home delivered meal provider in the area.  If the person is not eligible, the Care Coordinator can offer referrals to other programs or connect individuals with Senior Nutrition Sites (congregate meals) in the area.

 


We can assist in determining eligibility for benefits programs and helping individuals to apply. Programs include, but are not limited to, Medicaid, Medicare Part D (prescription drugs), Medicare Savings Programs,  SNAP (food stamps), and the license plate discount program.

Additionally Catholic Charities provides Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) outreach and education. The SMP program empowers consumers to prevent, detect, and report health care fraud.

 


The Family Caregiver Support Program links caregivers of elder persons or elder grandparents/relatives raising grandchildren with supportive services. Caregiver support services include: assessment by a Caregiver Specialist, Caregiver support groups, resource information, seminars and trainings and connections to benefit programs. Respite services are also available to help give caregivers a needed rest and time away from ongoing responsibilities.

 


Catholic Charities offers some transportation options. Priority is given to transportation requests to medical appointments.
