Elder Case Management provides assessment, monitoring, and protective services for seniors. Case managers oversee the development and implementation of client-specific care plans. They can help clients maintain independence through home and community services. These services are state-subsidized through the RI Division of Elderly Affairs’ Home and Community Care Programs.
Eligibility varies by program. In general, the Elder Case Management Unit helps residents of Kent County who are at least 60 years old or in assisted living.
