Care Coordinator

ANDRUS

Description

ANDRUS nurtures social and emotional well-being in children and their families by delivering a broad range of vital services and by providing research, training and innovative program models that promote standards of excellence for professional performance in and beyond our service community.

Care Management is a new department that is part of an expansion of ANDRUS. Care Management is a service model whereby all of an individual's caregivers communicate and interface so that the patient's needs are addressed in a comprehensive manner. This is done primarily through a care coordinator who oversees and coordinates access to a variety of services an individual needs to help ensure that they receive the proper services to help prevent hospitalizations, stay healthy, and maintain stability.

The Care Coordinator is ultimately responsible for the overall provision and coordination of services to assigned caseload. The Care Coordinator guides program enrollees and their caretakers (legal guardians) through the health care system by assisting with access issues, developing relationships with service providers, and tracking interventions and outcomes.

The work schedule is 9am -5pm Monday through Friday. The Care Coordinator must be able to drive to external locations and work flexible hours as required to meet program needs with some evenings and/or weekends as identified.
