The case manager explains his or her role in arranging for the services, describes to the client the services to be provided, informs the client when services are to begin, and promotes those activities that foster client self-sufficiency. As caseload size increases, the case manager has a decreasing capacity to perform ongoing case management activities such as followup, monitoring, and reassessment. To this end, the social work case manager engages in a range of tasks that support and enhance the system in which case management exists. Through outreach, the social worker identifies, accesses, and engages those individuals who would benefit from available services. By the same token, family members who have the time, a personal interest in the client, and an extensive knowledge of and a trusting relationship with the client and with the case manager can be in an advantageous position to schedule, supervise, monitor, adjust, and interpret services.
