Home Health Case Managers oversee the direction and coordination of a patient’s care and the care provided for their caregivers and family. Working closely with the rest of the home care or hospice care team, case managers decide how resources are allocated and formulate care plans for each patient. For hospice care, they also determine what level and types of counseling, education, and care the patient’s caregiver and family members will need before, during, and after the patient’s death. Case managers are usually Registered Nurses (RN). They direct the care provided by other RNs, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), and home health aides. They work alongside physical and occupational therapists, nurse practitioners, and social workers.
