Nurse Case Managers

helping hands

Older Adults, Healthy Results nurse case managers do the following:

  • Provide case management services that enhance care coordination and client support systems with the goals of improved client function, safety, and quality-of-life.

    Services may include:
    • Home visits
    • Multi-domain geriatric assessment
    • Fall prevention
    • Medication review
    • Linkage to community-based resources and supportive services
    • Health education to support self-management of chronic health conditions
    • Health navigation (especially for complex workups and multiple appointments)
    • Family/caregiver support and education

Frequency of "touch": Services are designed to be intensive. Initially, frequency of face-to-face visits is usually weekly and are gradually withdrawn as client/caregiver become more self-sufficient.

Length of services: Duration is typically upto 6 months but could be longer depending on the client’s ability and willingness to progress toward goals. Aim is for the client to “graduate” when longer-range, sustainable supports are in place.

Limited capacity: Since OA/HR is a small team of public health nurses working to meet the needs of a large population of vulnerable older adults, we must occasionally maintain a wait list. Referred clients are contacted as soon as our capacity allows.
