• Care Management client with head scarf


Linkages care managers and clients work together to identify resources and services that help them live independently at home. Linkages offers short-term care management with connections to local, non-profit and government programs that fit the client’s needs.

The program requires active involvement in care by the client or a committed support person or care provider, such as a family member or close friend.
