Circle of Care program

Overview

When you feel overwhelmed by caregiving, Northwell is here to help. Our Circle of Care program offers expert support and guidance to seniors as well as younger disabled persons to help navigate the worlds of eldercare and healthcare. Your care manager will conduct a thorough evaluation and will create a clear, concise plan that meets the specific needs of you or your loved ones. This may cover in-home services as well as a variety of community resources. Your geriatric care manager knows who to call, how to get things done and will walk you through the entire process.
