Baden Street Settlement’s Behavioral Health Services provides quality professional services for adults to achieve independence and community integration for individuals living with developmental disabilities, mental illness and substance abuse.

Health Home Care Management

A Health Home Care Manager assists in creating a person-centered care plan.  Care Managers assist in care coordination of your medical, mental health, substance abuse, and social services’ needs. Care Managers collaborate with your primary care physician and service providers to provide follow up and communication. Care Managers ensure all parties involved in your care are working together and sharing pertinent information to ensure you reach your desired outcome, based on goals and objectives identified in your Care Plan. Care Managers assist with housing needs, social, community activities, and legal assistance. If hospitalized, Care Managers participate in discharge planning, to ensure seamless transition from hospital stay to the next level of care.
