The Health Link approach to coordinated care planning
Most people with many different care needs see a lot of different people for support. It can be hard for these people and their families to arrange appointments, travel to appointments, and keep all of the information straight. Coordinated Care Planning can help.
Coordinated Care Planning brings the full Care Team together to develop a Care Plan, based on the person's unique needs and goals.
