CarePlus In a Nursing Facility
Nursing home residents often need specialized care and support. We are dedicated to the unique needs and concerns of you or your loved one. Through the CarePlus program,* our nurse practitioners work with you or your loved one in the nursing home to:
- Serve as health care advocates and provide an extra level of care management.
- Conduct physical examinations, manage chronic conditions, order lab tests and write prescriptions (in most states).
- Work with patients, doctors, family and nursing home staff to help create a personalized care plan.
- Make sure all providers, services and treatments work together to improve health and well-being.
To learn more about CarePlus, contact the local Optum sales agent in your nursing facility.
*To receive the support of our nurse practitioners, you must be a member of a participating health plan.
