General Case Management Services
Case managers help people live their own best lives by assisting them with identifying strengths and needs; providing necessary supports to access resources, and teaching necessary life skills that lead to improved functioning in the community. Areas that case managers frequently assist people with include: applying for, obtaining and maintaining housing; applying for financial and medical benefits (such as Medicaid, Social Security Benefits, General Assistance); coordinating medial and health needs; and obtaining food, clothing and transportation. Case managers help people complete and keep track of paperwork and support them through coordination with other agencies and advocacy. Case managers also help people develop the skills they need to increase their functioning and independence. This may include developing budgeting, communication and time management skills through training, prompting and practicing these at JAMHI, in the person’s own home and in the community.
