HealthTouch Services

Care Management

Under the guidance of a registered nurse care manager, a specialized team can assist you with all aspects of long-term care, enabling our clients to maintain their safety, security, and independence at home. Following an initial comprehensive needs assessment, the team which may include a nurse, certified nursing assistants, and/or social workers will collaborate with the client and family to establish a mutually agreed upon, affordable care management plan.

Medication Management

Registered nurses from HealthTouch can prefill medication cassettes, review administration and dosage, and coordinate with the client’s doctor if needed.

Assistance with Bill Paying/Budgeting

Help is available with bill paying, budgeting or checkbook balancing. We can also handle issues with medical insurance companies.

Transition to Alternative Living Arrangements

When a transition to an alternate living arrangement is preferred, our care manager will identify appropriate care settings, present these to the family or caregiver, and help ensure a smooth and timely transition.
