About Pathfinder Care Management
Pathfinder’s staff consists of five care managers, along with support staff including an Operations Manager and Community Relations Liaison. Our care managers are Registered Nurses or Licensed Social Workers. They have specialty certifications either in gerontology or care management. Additionally, they have extensive experience working with seniors and their families and keep current on community resources.
Our care managers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each client has a Primary Care Manager who is their main point of contact. Our electronic based record system and our all staff case review process allows for another Care Manager to fill in seamlessly if the Primary Care Manager is unavailable.
Yes, Pathfinder invoices for our services monthly and to ensure transparency, each charge is itemized with a detailed description.
Communicating with our clients and their family is a key priority of our Care Managers. Pathfinder uses in person visits, phone calls and emails to communicate, based on your preference or need. We are careful not to initiate any service without your knowledge and prior agreement.
Our Care Managers as Registered Nurses or Licensed Social Workers must complete mandated State of Minnesota continuing education to maintain licensure. Pathfinder supports Care Manager involvement in both community and professional organizations focusing on issues related to seniors and aging. Our Care Managers also must complete continuing education for specialty certifications.
