Caring for an older loved one is a big responsibility.
But for many of us, it’s only one of many: children, a demanding job, housework, errands, others that depend on you. It’s too much for one person to handle. But with CenterLight TeamCare to back you up, it no longer has to be.
CenterLight TeamCare, a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), helps caregivers in many ways.
WE HELP KEEP YOUR LOVED ONE LIVE SAFELY AT HOME.
We offer an alternative to placing your family member in a nursing home, so they can remain close to friends and family.
WE HANDLE IT ALL.
TeamCare offers complete management and coordination of your loved one’s care. For medically necessary services, we offer unlimited transportation. Nurses are available 24/7.
WE KEEP YOU INFORMED.
- We stay in close communication with caregivers and coordinated updates.
- Families can participate in their loved one’s care via phone or in person.
- Enjoy direct interaction with site social workers. Come celebrate “Family Days” at our sites.
WE TAKE THE STRESS AWAY.
Our program eliminates financial stress for you and your loved one. CenterLight TeamCare:
- Helps you navigate a complex system.
- Provides assistance with Entitlements, so you can save on attorney’s fees and maximize your loved one’s benefits.
NEED TO GET AWAY? WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED.
TeamCare offers family Respite care services, as part of the program benefit. This means that your loved one is cared for when you go on vacation or are otherwise unable to care for them.
CDPAS: DID YOU KNOW?
With TeamCare, your loved one can select their home caregiver. It can even be a family member or close friend - and they can even receive reimbursement for their service by participating in our CDPAS program.
How to Enroll
To get started in the enrollment process for CenterLight TeamCare, just give us a call at 1-833-CL-CARES (1-833-252-2737), Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. TTY users should call 711. If your loved one is transferring from a Managed Long Term Care Plan, we will send a nurse to meet with you to discuss your loved one's care needs and long-term options in detail. If necessary, we’ll help you navigate the government approval process to expedite coverage and services. We’ll formulate an individual care plan designed to meet your loved one's specific needs. You may also contact us by filling in the form on the right.
If your loved one is new to Managed Long Term Care, we will refer you to the Conflict-Free Evaluation and Enrollment Center (CFEEC), phone number 1-855-222-8350. Maximus (New York Medicaid Choice), in cooperation with CFEEC, will then conduct an evaluation using a tool called the Uniform Assessment System (UAS) to determine your loved one's eligibility for community-based long term care. Individuals who are deemed eligible for enrollment will receive education from CFEEC regarding plans in the area. If you are interested in enrolling your loved one into CenterLight, we advise you to inform CFEEC of your preference.
