Compassionate Care Management

Edgewood Care Management’s team of registered nurses and licensed social workers help coordinate and organize a senior’s healthcare challenges and serve as a liaison between family, hospitals, and health care providers.  Seniors may take advantage of any number of services including: the scheduling of and escorting to medical appointments and tests; supervision of medication needs and coordination of care; the monitoring and management of acute and chronic conditions; pre- and post-surgery follow-up; an assessment of in-home environmental safety for physical or mental impairment and much more.

Edgewood Care Management is led by MaryBeth Hillard, who is a registered nurse, board certified in Gerontological Nursing as well as a Certified Senior Advisor.

“We have been caring for seniors for more than 18 years, and have expanded our program to offer this valuable service to our neighbors beyond our senior living community. This new service extends the same caring culture and proven success that has made Edgewood a leader in life care, independent living, and healthcare support services,” said Marlene Rotering, President & Chief Executive Officer of Edgewood LifeCare Community.
