When Care Management is Needed
 

 

WHEN A GERIATRIC CARE MANAGER IS NEEDED

 

Everyone selects home care for various reasons.

The keys are to recognize when help is needed and how to select the right care provider to manage your care or your loved one's care.

The following is a list of questions that can help you make the decision on whether you should consider care management.

  • Has there been a recent emotional or medical crisis?
  • Are there frequent hospitalizations? 
  • Does the individual bathe less often, or not at all?
  • Are pills left over or running out too soon?
  • Is medication found lying out?
  • Does the individual need help walking?
  • Is he/she verbally or physically abusive?
  • Is he/she becoming more forgetful?
  • Have there been recent falls?
  • Is your loved one having problems sleeping?
  • Has there been recent weight loss?
  • Has he/she lost interest in eating?
  • Is his/her hearing or vision affecting the ability to function?
  • If he/she smokes, are ther burn marks?
  • Is your loved one able to do errands alone?
  • Is clothing being changed daily?
  • Is your loved one content to just sit in a chair?
  • Is there less participation in conversations?
  • Are there scorch marks on the pot holders or dish towels?
  • Are there signs of burnt pans on the stove?
  • Is routine house cleaning not being done?
  • Have social activities stopped or diminished?
  • Are siblings disagreeing on how to care for patients?

 

AS A CAREGIVER

  • Are you becoming worn out?
  • Do you miss your doctor appointments?
  • Do you find yourself snapping at everyone?
  • Do you have high levels of anxiety or fear?
  • Are you withdrawing from friends and family?
  • Are you feeling a resentment toward your loved one?
  • Are you feeling guilty?
  • Do you overreact to commonplace accidents?

 

If you answered yes to even one of these questions, perhaps it is time to consider in-home care.
