Care Management

Care management is an important service that includes coordinating care and services that will help you deliver on the goals you identified in your Care Plan. Every Home Care Package, including those being self-managed will require some level of care management.

Care management is an essential key component of every Home Care Package. It ensures you receive the appropriate level of support in a way that meets your current and future care needs. It should ensure there is no overlap, over-servicing or mismanagement of services.

Care management may include:
Reviewing your Home Care Agreement (an Agreement between you, and your provider, detailing the services you will access) and Care Plan (a Plan designed by you and your provider to ensure the services you access help you achieve your goals)
Coordination and scheduling of services
Ensuring your care is aligned with other supports
Providing a point-of-contact for you or your support network
Ensuring the care you receive is respectful of your culture; &
Identifying and addressing risks to your safety.

Care management may be provided in different ways including face-to-face or via phone or email. For further information, see the ‘Approach to care management’ definition or speak with the provider.

Approach to care management

100 per cent of your funds are available for services because Meditech does not charge case management fees. A Case Manager will be provided to assist you with your package and be your first point of contact with us. This service is complimentary. We also have a 24-hour hotline which operates 365 days a year, so we are here whenever you need us.

Information about the provider’s approach to care management includes what they offer and how they charge for it. Some providers may let you choose an independent care manager or let you manage some of your own services.
