360° Care Management
360° Care Management is Qualicare Ottawa’s premium service. It provides complete, coordinated care managed care, and a dedicated Personal Care Manager (PCM) to provide the ultimate level of care for the patient and family. This is holistic healthcare taken to its highest level. It is a very effective way of providing individualized, comprehensive and proactive home care.
When illness strikes or aging becomes challenging, families are faced with an overwhelming new reality. There are physical and emotional issues to deal with. New medical routines and ongoing doctors’ visits to arrange and coordinate. Supplies and equipment may be required, or modifications to the home may be necessary. There are many practical decisions that must be made. Trying to cope with all the complications that illness brings while keeping all your responsibilities in order can be stressful.

Qualicare’s Personal Care Managers (PCMs) are capable of providing families with a holistic picture – a 360 degree perspective. They coordinate all aspects of a patient’s healthcare and help families support each other. The knowledge, guidance and support they provide greatly reduces the burden on family members and allows them to stay involved in a more meaningful and caring way.
