How can a Nurse Care Manager help me?

Nurse Care Managers are members of the primary care team and have close working relationships with your primary care provider. They will regularly consult with your provider to discuss your care.

Your Nurse Care Manager will give you information for your health condition and other health needs. You will work together to set action plans or take small steps to reach your goals. Your Nurse Care Manager can help you with:

  • Healthy eating
  • Physical activity
  • Medications
  • Equipment care and use
  • Preventive health and risk reduction
  • Stress management
  • Care coordination
  • Community resources

You can meet at the doctor's office, at home, in the community or by phone.
