Sometimes life can be very confusing and very different from the "normal" you once knew. Sometimes it's difficult to know where to start. Camarillo Health Care District understands that life transitions can be complicated, frightening and can come with a sense of being overwhelmed.
Care Management Services can help you and your family develop a plan to age as successfully and independently as possible, in your own home. Person-centered plans can be developed utilizing a variety of screenings, such as depression, fall risk, and cognitive decline, while speaking with trained staff members and health coaches, and participating in evidence-based educational activities that help guide you toward your goals.
The Camarillo Health Care District recently began offering SHARE, a program for people experiencing early- to mid-stage dementia, and their caregivers. The acronym stands for support, health, activities, resources and education.
A trained health coach engages in discussions about symptoms, communication and healthy activities, while helping clients plan for the future, keeping the client’s own values and preferences in mind for their life as the disease progresses.
The program, based on research by the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging and funded through a grant from the Arthur N. Rupe Foundation, consists of five sessions with a trained health coach, with an optional sixth session for family to be included.
“They work on specific goals, topics and exercises that help build a shared plan that they can walk away with at the end,” says Lynette Harvey, Clinical Services Director for the Camarillo Health Care District.
A care plan will be developed that reflects the person's personal preferences.
To participate in the program, please call 388-1952, ext. 107, to schedule your individual sessions.
Health Promotion Coaches work one-on-one with you and your family, and your medical team toward your goals. Services include in-person and telephone communication, resources and referrals, assistance with utilizing those resources, and focused work to accomplish your care plan and your health goals.
Camarillo Health Care District is an award-winning agency and has become a model throughout Californnia for innovative and transformative health management that leads to cost-effective health outcomes and optimal living in the client's preferred setting.
