AOWN Care Management Program

The AOWN care management programs are designed to provide identification, coordination and facilitation of community services to assist elderly to remain in their

own homes.  This program receives its certification from the Nebraska Health and Human Services, State Unit on Aging.  Care Managers are Registered 

Nurses or Certified Social Workers.   They conduct a complete assessment of each individual to identify needs.  Develop and recommend a plan of care, help arrange 

for appropriated community resources and provide regular follow-up to assure satisfaction and to identify changing needs.  This program does not provide skilled 

nursing services.  


The Care Management Unit, by State statute, must determine the individual’s ability to cost share in its provision.  Each person’s monthly income is applied to the

 sliding fee scale to assess their share.  But no individual will be denied service due to their inability to pay.  


The program is available to all residents in the Panhandle of Nebraska.  Referrals are received from any source.  If you would like further information press the button
