Case management - specialist disability services

Case management support assists the person to identify, link with and organise the supports they need to deal with problems and achieve their goals.

Case management support is tailored to the individual needs of a person with a disability and includes the needs of family and carers.

What's the aim of case management?

Disability case management services aim to assist people with disabilities to become more independent and active in community life.

What does it involve?

Case managers establish a positive collaborative relationship with the person, and their support network, such as family members. They then assist the person to identify, link with and organise the supports they need to deal with problems and achieve their goals.

Case management involves a person-directed planning process. Supports accessed through case management will be suited to individual needs and the needs of family and carers. For more information, see Individual support package.
