Membership

Care Coordination

Our care coordinators are the heart of our program and the relationship they build with our members is the key to what makes The Wesley at Home successful. Our care coordinators partner with our members in their aging journey and help maximize independence and choice no matter what changes may occur. Unlike traditional care management that is reactive, our care coordination is proactive and person-centered. Our process helps to build trust with members.

A Care Coordinator will meet with Members not less than quarterly and will be assigned to oversee the provision of services. They will develop a Care Plan with the Member and/or the Member’s Representative

The relationship between the care coordinator and the member allows for the care coordinator to help advocate for the wants, wishes, and needs of the member. Care Coordinators provide expert advice and guidance to members and their loved ones during their most difficult times. For some members who may not have family nearby or maybe a solo ager, their care coordinator may be the first call they make when something is wrong. Care coordinators may attend physician appointments to help ask important questions or take notes. They may also go to the hospital to make sure a member’s needs are being met and that there is a safe discharge plan. They work with family members and loved ones and keep the member’s best interests and wishes at the core of their work.

The care coordinator is the contact for all services provided through The Wesley at Home. All it takes is one call to your care coordinator to get access to services. Our members do not call a 1-800 number, they call, text, or email their personal care coordinator directly. We set up all the services that you may need on your behalf and oversee them for quality. The continuity and ease of access to our services is another unique feature of our program.
