“My case manager helped me navigate treatment and system barriers. I have been able to receive Medicaid Social Security Disability which has helped me focus on treatment.”
“CARES has provided in person support at doctor appointments which has helped me learn how to self-advocate for appropriate brain injury treatment.”
“Just having the meeting with my case manager lifted a heavy burden from my husband and me–we weren’t alone.”
“The stress on families is enormous when they are trying to help a disabled son or daughter. So it means so much when you can have CARES case management in your life, who is always ‘there’ for you, who is caring, smart, efficient, and pragmatic.”
“My case manager was the help I needed when I was in complete distress and felt like I had no hope.”
