What to Expect From Case Management at RMHS

Our team of case managers work with people to assess program eligibility and provide service options that best meet their long-term support needs. After enrollment, RMHS case managers provide ongoing case management services through annual in-person assessments, service planning, and regular touchpoints to ensure that each person receives the Long-Term Services and Supports that are just right for them.

We take a person-centered approach, helping people understand their options and facilitate connections to services and providers, such as:

  • Adult day services
  • Home delivered meals
  • Modifications to homes for accessibility
  • Medication reminders
  • General support such as dishwashing, laundry, shopping, bathing, dressing, and much more
  • Options for alternative community living
  • Transportation to places other than medical appointments
  • Respite
  • And more

Our team of case managers helps monitor these services so that individuals receive the right Long-Term Services and Supports when they are needed.
