Case Management Services
What is Case Management?
Do you need help navigating the disability service delivery system? Trying to find special needs care and services for your family member can be overwhelming, time-consuming, and frustrating. Our Case Managers at Bright Start are ready to assist by offering creative planning to meet your family member’s unique needs. We can help you connect to the best services and resources in the community for your loved one.
Bright Start provides Intake and Case Management services.
Intake is the process of gathering information and records to determine if your family member is eligible for services through the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (DDSN)
The purpose of a Case Manager is to assist people with disabilities and their families through choice in meeting needs, pursuing possibilities, and achieving life goals.
Unlike most providers, Bright Start provides a more intense level of case management services. Our Case Managers visit families in the home and/or the community, bi-monthly, to establish relationships in order to better meet the needs of your loved one and your family.
If you would like to determine if your family member is eligible for case management services, please call the central intake and referral line at the SC Department of Disabilities and Special Needs at 1-800-289-7012.
