Case management in long-term care--the task of individual related and family-oriented support for people in need of care and its realization through the reform of long-term care insurance

Zeitschrift für Gerontologie und Geriatrie 41(2): 92-105

The introduction of standardized Case Management structures to improve coordination and cooperation of all involved in care, such as cost units, service providers, voluntary organizations, families and the different occupational categories involved in nursing, is the main concern of the current reform of German long-term care insurance. In this article, demands on Case Management in care are enunciated and the basics found in expert talks, needed for efficient support of care, assembled. In doing so, the role and function of Case Management is differentiated, the different levels (case, organizational and system levels) distinguished and options and conditions needed to settle such an organization are introduced.
