FlexCare Case Management

What is the FlexCare Program?

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities can be good options for people who require that level of care, but sometimes these environments can be avoided with the right level of support. This is where FlexCare comes in.

FlexCare offers an alternative option to nursing homes that provide elderly or medically fragile clients with coordinated care so that they can remain in the community for as long as possible. With this intensive level of support and teamwork, FlexCare improves the quality of life and provides safe options for independence that elders need and deserve. When seniors opt into FlexCare, they can experience the flexibility of living at home while continuing to receive a variety of important services to maintain their health and wellness. FlexCare offers the professional guidance of trained social workers to help people maintain independence.

FlexCare nursing bridges the gap between physical health needs and the medical office, providing crucial in-home support to elders who need their health conditions closely monitored. Because of the individualized care plan that each FlexCare client receives, it is a unique experience for each person.

Why is FlexCare important?

Loss of autonomy and independence is one of the greatest fears elderly people face. Often this fear, coupled with a dread of burdening loved ones, keeps elders isolated and without the appropriate level of support. By the time proper levels of care are identified, often elders have suffered health set-backs and struggle with depression and anxiety.

Depression is a reality for 6.5 million Americans over the age of sixty-five. The risk of suicide in elderly people is significant, particularly if there are unmanaged physical and mental health conditions. Some seniors with depression or other mental health needs consider it a sign of weakness, which perpetuates the tendency to keep their challenges a secret. The tragic outcome of this silence is a worsening quality of life and a continued decline in physical and mental health in isolation.

FlexCare is a great solution for people who don’t require a nursing home or assisted living setting but need a support team to help manage physical, social and mental health care needs. Family members who are exploring care options for elderly loved ones are often relieved to find such a comprehensive program that supports multiple needs within one program. Rather than accessing a dozen different agencies and programs, FlexCare offers clients a one-stop option to coordinate providers and create a unified plan of care.
