The Council on Aging has four full-time case managers, all of whom are licensed social workers. These case managers assist close to 2,000 clients every year. They conduct in-home visits to assess each person’s individual strengths and functional abilities, help them plan for assistance now and in the future, make connections with service providers and informal resources, monitor the success of the plan, and make necessary adjustments as time goes on. They are ready to work with any Lake County senior and/or families and caregivers of these individuals. They work closely with major Lake County senior service providers to ensure that assistance is well-coordinated and complete.
Geriatric Care Management
As the older adult population in Lake County continues to grow, we have seen an increase in clients who have more intensive care needs. In response to this need, the Department of Geriatric Care Management has been created. Our goal will be to assist clients who may be facing multiple challenges such as physical, cognitive, emotional, and functional limitations. Our social workers will be working closely with seniors and their caregivers to ensure safety, and to navigate the maze of senior services. In addition, we are partnering with Lake Health to bring an outpatient comprehensive Geriatric Assessment Program to Lake County. Click here for more details!
