Expectations:

Case managers should be dynamic and eager to serve. Among their responsibilities are client engagement, retention and client satisfaction. Empowerment is the key. Case managers are expected to go above and beyond their responsibilities in identifying resources and advocating for the client.


A critical role of the case managers is that of an educator-- case managers are expected to educate their clients (without being condescending) about the clients' recovery plan and resources that the client might not know that will help them recover. Case managers should teach the client how to access them so that in the future the client is able to access them on their own. Case managers are expected to conduct outreach and community assessments to learn the layout of the community, identifying the most vulnerable populations. They are to learn of local community resources that are unique to their area. They are expected to develop relationships with community leaders and natural allies such as churches of different denominations, businesses that might help clients or provide employment opportunities, local governments, etc. Case managers are expected to present cases to their supervisor and the long-term recovery committees.

Case status should be frequently reevaluated to decide if the client has reached his or her objectives, if any additional resources have become available, and/or if the case should be closed.

Recommendation: If at all possible, cases should be discussed weekly at a round table with other case managers and supervisor.
