Although each client has his or her own dedicated care manager who serves as a single point of contact, our entire professional staff collaborates to address our clients' often complicated needs.
Our care managers' brief bios tell you little about their experience, but can't convey the sensitivity, compassion, dedication and results they demonstrate every day. We urge you to read our family stories and professional testimonials to see what actual clients have to say about their experiences with the people at Intervention Associates.
