Boardwalk Homecare Applies Case Management Approach to Hourly Services
Since 2006, Boardwalk Homecare has been providing quality live-in home care throughout New Jersey. Mindful that long-term care planning has become sophisticated for discharge planners and onerous for their patients, Boardwalk Homecare embarked on a unique strategy that did not exist in a very crowded home care industry.
Over the course of 10 years, Boardwalk Homecare has developed a Case Management Approach to home care focused on the following principles:
• Be Compassionate, for Everyone You Meet is Fighting a Harder Battle – Help families overcome the stress involved with arranging for elder care on behalf of a loved one.
• If You Want to Do Great Things, Take the Time to Educate - Help families make elder care decisions based on presenting ALL options, merit, suitability and sustainability and NOT by steering them towards a specific provider agenda.
• Better Manage Continuity of Care Through Case Coordination – Help families obtain peace of mind by assigning dedicated case managers to ensure the safety and well-being of their loved ones.
Licensed in New Jersey as a Health Care Service Firm, Boardwalk Homecare’s operation provides much more than the state requires. Boardwalk Homecare’s case managers are proficient at improving communication, education and support for patients planning to return home.
“No other home care provider has made this kind of commitment in supporting not only the initial urgency but more importantly the ongoing responsibility a family faces with managing home care services,” said Brendan Watson, Co-Owner of Boardwalk Homecare. “Discharge planning can be very time-consuming and a patient’s success is typically left to their own devices once they are back home. Boardwalk Homecare’s Case Management Approach addresses both of these needs.”
Boardwalk Homecare looks to build upon their success with live-in care and expand hourly services in additional counties. Dedicated case managers will continue to play a critical role in providing ongoing education and support to any family exploring home care services.
