Journey Life Care Program

Journey Life Care (JLC) provides professional care management services to aging adults or others facing ongoing health challenges and crises. JLC is a community-based service that allows the Care Manager to work independently with the client they designate as "home."

 

What is the role of a Care Manager?

Care Managers specialize in working with older adults or those with debilitating diseases. Typically, our Care Managers have a nursing or social work background that encompasses the multi-faceted aspects of holistic care. Services can include:

Navigating through aging transitions can be complicated and overwhelming, especially during the busyness of life. A Care Manager can step in and guide a partner with the individual, family, and care team at any time. Our goal is for you never to be alone and have a connection along life's journey.
