A service for people managing chronic illness.
This program helps at-risk families and individuals who don't have resources themselves, are chronically or terminally ill, and are not eligible for other in-home services. Community Case Management is a service provided by Poudre Valley Health System at no charge for those who qualify.
PVH Community Case Managers are Advanced Practice Nurses and Licensed Clinical Social Workers. The PVH Community Case Managers work with clients and their caregivers in their homes to help them cope with their disease or chronic health problems. They can help with:
- Managing physical health problems
- Connection with other community services
- Dietary concerns
- Home safety evaluations
- Safe medicine use
- Education on specific illnesses and treatments
- Stress management
- Emotional support
- Monitoring of client progress through home visits or phone calls
Case managers help clients use community and medical services so they can live more independently. Our staff comprises a total of five registered nurses and a social worker.
| Advanced Practice Nurses and Social Workers from PVHS' Community Case Management program receive the ANCC Magnet Prize in honor of their innovative program.
Most of clients are referred to the Community Case Program by hospital staff members, physicians and their office staff members, or home health care agencies. To be eligible for case management services, patients must live in the Fort Collins, Windsor, or Loveland areas; and have a physician who is on the medical staff at Poudre Valley Hospital or Medical Center of the Rockies.
