Targeted case management is a service designed to help individuals with mental retardation, chronic mental illness or developmental disabilities gain access to appropriate living environments, needed medical services, and interrelated social, vocational, and educational services.
The targeted case management process focuses on the individual using service's strengths, interests, abilities, and competencies and it takes place in the community in which they live.
The individual is viewed as the director of the targeted case management process. The relationship between the individual and case manager is primary and essential. Effective communication in providing information to the individual, their family and those providing services is very important for the success of the individual.
Targeted case management provides for the individual's maximum participation in the decision making process. Individuals receiving the service, their families, guardians and other professional/agencies are involved in identifying, developing implementing and monitoring comprehensive plans.
The community is viewed as a resource not an obstacle and the targeted case management process facilitates access to available public and private resources and advocates for resources to meet the current and future needs of the individuals.
Targeted case management strives to attain a greater level of integration of the individual in the community.
Targeted case management is confidential and professional.
