Do you enjoy working with seniors to help them improve their quality of life and live as independently as possible? With the holidays just around the corner, does a flexible schedule and extra income sound appealing? Giving Tree currently has openings for care managers in Virginia. If you’re a nurse, a social worker, or have a background in human services, psychology, or gerontology, becoming a care manager gives you an outstanding opportunity for rewarding work and competitive pay. Care management is a holistic approach to caring for seniors and people with physical or developmental disabilities. Care managers provide assessments and recommendations for a plan of care, education for family members, coordination with the person’s health care team, and family caregiver coaching. It is a person-centered philosophy that puts the needs of the client and his/her family at the forefront. Care managers aim to help families navigate the often-confusing choices regarding home care, senior housing, and community resources. Care managers also help families locate state and federal benefits and entitlement programs for which the older adult may be eligible. Giving Tree offers guidance and support to new care managers every step of the way as they learn how to best serve their clients. The caseload for a care manager can be as light or as full as one prefers. Unlike many other careers in the health care field, care management offers flexibility and control over one’s schedule. You are in the driver’s seat when it comes to planning your weekly visits with clients. This allows for a healthy work-life balance, and is ideal for people who want to supplement their income and use their skills to make a positive difference in their clients’ lives.
