FFC Cares Care Management ™
What is Care Management? Care Management services involve customized coordination and assistance with decision making in a variety of areas ranging from housing and moving, to medical care and other support services. This is coordinated through a Care Manager who works with you to identify your care goals, then works to coordinate the services that allow you to meet those goals. The guidance and support of a Care Manager allows the client to optimize their quality of life and care, while reducing stress and anxiety for family caregivers.
