Hospital Care Management for Seniors and Aging Parents with Darrin Care

Continuing Your Care

Often, after being discharged from the hospital, further care is required for recovery time. This usually happens in a nursing home or rehabilitation center. As a professional care manager, I will work with you to review the admitting criteria and the length of stay and care provided. If the entry into the facility is covered under your Medicare benefit then nursing and therapy will be an important part of your success to return to an acceptable level of functioning, I will speak to the nurses and therapists as well as review the medical records.

An additional physician or specialty support will be reviewed and facilitated as needed. There will be a collaboration with the facility social worker to attend care conferences, review discharge planning, or look at long term care needs to include financial planning. An active review of the success of skilled therapy will be done to watch for extra care needs. In the event your family member is permanently relocated to a nursing facility I will ensure care is appropriate and their needs are being addressed.


Disease Management

If you are currently diagnosed with a complex acute or chronic illness, care management can improve the quality of care at all levels in the skilled nursing facility. I can facilitate the continuity of care where the client wishes to be, coordinate areas related to specialty equipment, locate providers for home modifications, and make arrangements for all transportation needs.

Services Include:

Facilitating Medicare-covered days for rehabilitation.

Educating families on visiting someone in a nursing facility and offering practical suggestions.

Advocacy regarding the rights of a long term care resident.

Use of care manager knowledge of community skilled nursing facilities to find optimal rehabilitation.
