CASE MANAGEMENT

Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa knows that navigating the support and resource systems can be overwhelming. Our ADvantage Case Managers will work closely with you, your loved ones, state and local agencies, and other Meals on Wheels of Metro Tulsa programs. We monitor changes in your care through a combination of home visits, telephone contact, and secondary reports from other service providers. Your Case Manager will follow up with your changes in condition and connect you with the right resources.

The ultimate goal is to provide resources necessary to help you solve complicated problems that will help you safely remain in your home and community.

 

Individuals enrolled in all of our programs receive Case Management. Referrals for contracted ADvantage Case Management must be processed through one of our Certified ADvantage Case Managers, DHS ADvantage Program, or another contracted provider.
