A case manager at work
This short video, produced by Irwin Mitchell, solicitors, gives a snapshot of how Amanda Bairstow, a Harrison Associates senior case manager, works with a seriously injured young child’s family to put a circle of support in place. This network transforms their lives.
‘As soon as Irwin Mitchell suggested a case manager we thought we’d try it- and Amanda has come in with all these great people’
Valerie Giggs, mother of Mac Giggs, client of Irwin Mitchell.
“The role of the case manager is not only integral to the rehabilitation process but also provides the child’s family with much needed advice and support. My work with Mac and his family has involved establishing a team of specialist therapists who have unlocked Mac’s potential. He has made progress in areas such as mobility, communication and is generally more engaged with the world around him. This video shows a multi-disciplinary meeting of Mac’s private therapists, his mother and myself as case manager where we discuss his recent progress, review his goals and make plans for future intervention.”

A ‘first’ for Harrison Associates
Harrison Associates is proud to announce that we are the first organisation outside of North America to be accredited for independent evaluation (expert witness) services by CARF International (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). CARF announced in summer 2013 that Harrison Associates has received formal accreditation for a three year period, the maximum possible under the process. This accreditation covers case management services as well. More here.
