Case Management
for Caregivers

In Cochise County, bilingual case managers identify family and other unpaid caregivers, who are currently caring for elders. Case managers are uniquely able to reach family caregivers of individuals with severe limitations, who would better respond to services delivered to their homes. Case managers help educate caregivers about how to perform their roles more effectively, and how to interface with formal caregivers. Case managers are prepared to tell caregivers about community education and resources, or caregiver training that is available. Case managers listen to caregivers' needs, taking into account rural and cultural concerns. They work to enable caregivers to make informed decisions, to learn skills needed for specific caregiving situations, and to develop coping strategies. Books and films are also available to caregivers from the loan library. For more information contact:
