Nurse Care Management
Coastal Care Partners offers an innovative, relationship-focused approach to caring for aging adults. From overseeing medications to answering medical questions at times of uncertainty, a Nurse Care Manager serves as a guide and advocate for older adults facing ongoing health and mental health challenges due to aging, disability, dementia, and more.
How Does Nurse Care Management Work?
Our nurses work in sync with aging adults and their families to help them navigate the complexities of aging, making it an ideal program for both long-distance families who worry about an aging relative’s health as well as close-distance or working families who need extra medical assistance for their loved one.
After an initial meeting where one of our nurses gets to know the client and gains an objective perspective on their physical and mental health situation, the care manager develops a personalized care plan that caters to their specific needs while anticipating any developments as their health evolves. Through close relationships and unmatched care, our Nurse Managed Care helps clients reach their fullest physical and mental potential.

It’s hard for me to drive, can you help me get to my appointments?
Yes! We can coordinate transportation and make getting to and from your appointments easier. Also, for most appointments we have your Care Manager accompany you and participate in the discussion with the clinician to ensure all important medical information is captured.
What can you do for me at my doctors’ appointments?
We will go with you to your appointments and help you discuss your health care situation with your physicians. Because we have years of nursing experience, we can ask questions and provide information that you may not know is important. We also can help if you have more than one doctor. We can ensure all of your health providers have ALL of your information, and we make sure a coordinated plan is developed for you.
My mother lives alone in Savannah and I live out of town, can you help me with her care?
Yes! That is one of the big reasons Coastal Care Partners was created. We will coordinate with you and keep you informed of your loved one’s care. We will communicate with you as much as you would like and ensure you are fully aware and as involved as you would like. Consider us your “family health care assistant”. Over the years we have found that many families rely on us to ensure mom and dad are cared for and in “good hands” while they live apart from other relatives. We are proud of our reputation as “a big reason why” parents can age-in-place and not have to rush into a long-term care community.
Does insurance cover your services?
Traditional health insurance generally does not cover Care Management services, but some Long-Term Care insurance companies do. We all wish that insurance would cover such needed services, the fact is that as of now they don’t. We will discuss all of our fees and help build a plan that you can afford. We have both long-term plans and also, offer as-needed services.
My healthcare provider has a care manager and my insurance company offers care suggestions, why do I need a private navigator?
Very simply, we work for you, not the insurance company, and not your health care providers. We have your best interest in mind and advocate for you! While your care providers and insurance company are key players in your health care, they are also businesses looking out for their own interests. We only work for you. The only way we have repeat clients is if you are satisfied with our services and we help you find solutions. We are YOUR teammate!
I have many insurance bills and I just can’t figure out if they are right, what can I do?
Let Coastal Care Partners untangle the web for you! We can organize your insurance bills, contact the insurance company and work to get an understandable plan in place. This can mean you have peace of mind knowing you are paying only what you need to and that you have the right insurance approvals to make your care decisions correctly.
It’s getting more difficult to get around my house, can you help me figure out what I can do to stay at home?
This is an area we are extremely passionate about. Living in your home as long as possible is often desired. We can assess your independence and help you decide just what is needed to ensure you have the care and safety you need to remain at home as long as possible. Also, we opened Coastal Independence and Mobility, a retail medical supply store where we offer home medical equipment mobility items that allow you to live at home safely and successfully. We also have resources to help with home modifications to help you age-in-place. When it is time to move to an assisted living or full care environment, we have a wealth of knowledge and experience with many local facilities and can help you with your decision.
I love having my personal health care navigator, can you help me with other areas?
Yes! We have many partners in the community that can help with financial decisions, legal advice, sitting services, and even help run errands. We want to help you find solutions!
