Care Management for Alzheimer’s and Dementia

Alzheimer's care managers coordinate the many facets of care including:

  • Enhancing behavior, cognition and mood
  • Foster a safe environment
  • Maximize the individual's role in daily activities
  • Promote social opportunities

This helps ensure that the individual who has Alzheimer's preserves a quality of life, and that caregivers and families receive the support they need to make decisions regarding their loved-one’s care.

Whether It's at home or in long-term care, Alzheimer's care managers guide families through complex issues.

Among their many duties, care managers may do some or all of the following, depending on the situation:

  • Organize care solutions tailored to the unique needs of your parent or senior loved one.
  • Conduct a comprehensive assessment of your loved-one, observing problems relevant to his or her situation, like finances, health history, housing, insurance, nutrition and safety.
  • Create a care plan that integrates the assessment and recommends local community options.
  • Monitor your loved-one on a regular basis, ensuring any health changes receive the attention of the medical team.

Assisted Living Placement Services

There are several assisted living facilities in the Indianapolis Metro-area and surrounding regions. It can be very overwhelming to track down the best choice when it comes to picking out a facility that fits the care needs of a senior.

Advocate Care Management provides free senior placement services.

Initial Assessment/Conversation: Together, we look at the requirements of the senior based on medical care, financial, geographical, and family's individual preference to coincide with the senior's interests and needs.

Our goal is to be certain the senior will be comfortable, welcomed and cared for in their new surroundings.

Research: We then identify a number of appropriate facilities and schedule/organize on-site visits.

The facilities we work with are trustworthy. We know the environment, amenities as well as the personalities of each community. In addition, we regularly check and research the license background, reviews and compliance documents on each facility.

Tour: We are available to accompany the relatives and/or senior on the tour of those facilities and aid in the decision-making process. Our job will be to present you with appropriate choices to meet the needs and individual preferences of the senior.

Follow Up: We make periodic visits to the new resident after placement in a community, to be certain the care of the senior's emotional and physical needs are being met. We continue to talk to the family as long as needed and help with any questions or concerns that might arise in following the care of the resident.

Disease Management

Care management programs can help our seniors improve their health and access the services they need. We create comprehensive care plans that help seniors meet specific health goals.


To help clients learn how to manage their conditions and meet their individual needs, a care manager meets with them to complete an assessment.

The care manager asks the client questions about his or her health and the resources currently being used. The client's answers help the care manager determine what kind of assistance they need most.

Care Plan

Next, the senior and the care manager work together to develop a care plan. The care manager also educates the client on how to obtain what they need.

The care manager may work with the senior's health care providers to coordinate care.

How much assistance the client needs and how frequently the care manager sees him or her will vary based upon their diagnosis and individual needs.
