UC Davis Care Management provides care management services to adults with disabilities and low income seniors with physical and cognitive impairments in Sacramento, Yolo and Placer Counties. Care managers coordinate and facilitate access to a variety of services for people that need assistance in managing and organizing their care.

The goal of care management is to assist clients to maintain independence and the ability to remain in their home and/or community as long as possible and to avoid institutionalization. Care managers educate the clients and caregivers about resources available to them and advocate for services that will enhance the client's quality of life.

UC Davis Care Management consists of three care management programs meeting the needs of functionally impaired adults. The Multipurpose Senior Services Program (MSSP) provides long term care management to frail, low income elders, aged 65 and older. Clients must be eligible for Medi-Cal and have difficulty in several activities of daily living such as dressing, eating, or mobility.

The client for the Caregiver Support Program is the caregiver of an impaired person aged 60 and older. There is no income requirement for this program. The care manager's role is to assist the caregiver link with services that will reduce caregiver stress. This program is only available for Sacramento County residents.

The final program is a pilot project called the Assisted Living Project. This program links clients to assisted living facilities when they are no longer able to live independently but do not need a nursing home environment. To qualify for this program, the client must be aged 65 and older, low income and are certifiable for nursing home placement. This program is available to Sacramento County residents only.
