Care Guidance Program
The Care Guidance Program is a voluntary, personal, health management program which provides support and resources to help you manage your health. It is available to you and your family. Montefiore provides this program – at no cost to you – as part of the To Your Health! Wellness initiative. All services are completely confidential.
A Personal Health Nurse (PHN) will work one-on-one with you for as long and as often as you need. Working as a team, your physician and PHN will set health goals, create an action plan and identify ways to help you maintain healthy habits. Your PHN’s goal is to efficiently guide you through the different aspects of the health care system, making your care manageable and more successful.
Your PHN will help you:
- Find a physician or other healthcare provider; schedule appointments and navigate other healthcare services.
- Communicate with care providers and coordinate healthcare related services provided by multiple doctors and facilities to help your healthcare team better understand your overall health status and how it may be affecting your daily life.
- Understand your medications – If you have any concerns about your medications, possible drug interactions and the importance of following medication plans, your PHN may arrange a consultation with the Care Guidance Program’s pharmacist to ensure that you are being treated with the most effective medication regimen.
- Prepare a Living Will, identify a Healthcare Proxy and discuss these important Life Planning decisions with family members and healthcare providers.
