The Case Management program is a contracted service unique to Dane County, which links older adults with services (i.e. food, housing, legal, medical, financial, social well-being etc.) to help them remain as independent as possible in their homes. Case Managers conduct home visits to assess the individual needs of each senior adult and then together they complete a service plan that may include applying for community resources and programs that best allow the senior to remain living independently at home. Case Managers work with seniors for as long as the coordination of services are needed. McFarland Senior Outreach has two Case Managers who are devoted to coordinating, evaluating and advocating for services to meet each individual's needs and preferences.
Case managers provide referrals and coordination of the following:
- Home assistance with light housekeeping, laundry, lawn care, and minor home repairs.
- Prescription and health insurance assistance
- Assessment of eligibility for federal, state, and county programs
- Respite care options
- Support groups, including caregiver support
- Elder abuse and neglect resources, including financial scam support
- Financial and utility assistance programs
- Recreational, socialization, and volunteer programs
Case Management services are available to older adults, age 60 years old and older who are living in the Village of McFarland, Town of Pleasant Springs, Town of Dunn, Village of Cambridge, Village of Rockdale, and Town of Christiana. There is no charge for case management services.
All referrals to Case Managers remain confidential. Case Managers share information only with necessary provider agencies for the purpose of providing services and only with the consigned consent of the care recipient. Persons may remain anonymous when making a referral for another person.
