Care Management

Caregiving needs change daily. People become dependent on others. Other people suddenly find themselves in a caregiving role. People who are already providing care have new demands that affect their ability to help. Service providers may alter their programs. Thus there is always a need for information about available community services, both for caregivers and for those who need care.
