What is Case Management?
Case Management is a collaborative process of assisting an individual and the individual’s family or support system to identify and assess needs and develop a plan to meet those needs. As a part of this process, a Case Manager educates the client about community resources, plans and coordinates services, and monitors the services and goals that have been put in place. Case Management at Community Brain Injury Services is client-centered and client-driven: clients create their own goals and are empowered in the case management process to make decisions. The Case Manager meets with each client in the environment that best suits their individual needs, in their own home or in the Case Manager’s office, or a preferred location in the community such as a restaurant or a library.
Brain Injury Understood:
Life after a brain injury is often filled with complex challenges, affecting not only a survivor of brain injury, but their family and support system as well. Managing these challenges alone can be overwhelming and accessing services in the community can be confusing and frustrating. Case Managers at Community Brain Injury Services provide support specific to the unique needs of survivors of brain injury, acting as an advocate for the client and family as they navigate service systems together.
