What Is Case Management?
Case Management is the gateway to services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Broomfield and Boulder counties. Once individuals qualify for support through Imagine!, they, along with their family, guardians, friends, and program staff, meet with a case manager to discuss which services can help them reach their goals.
The case manager then drafts an Individual Plan (I.P.), which addresses the issues discussed in the meeting and outlines the strategy for going forward. Working directly with individuals and their families, the case manager helps obtain services through Imagine! or an independent Service Provider Organization (SPO) and makes sure these services are coordinated and delivered in a way that helps each person reach his or her goals. Frequent evaluations of an I.P. ensure that the strategy remains relevant to each individual’s needs.
