Oaas Support Coordinator 

About the Organization Easterseals Louisiana (ESL) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to change the way the world defines and views disabilities by making profound, positive differences in people's lives everyday. Established in 1951, our organization supports over 8,600 individuals (whom we refer to as Participants) with a variety of disabilities. A leading provider of disability services, ESL has physical locations in 8 regions of Louisiana and our array of programs include; support coordination (case management) for children, adults and elderly participants, a wide range of behavioral health and housing services, early intervention services for infants and toddlers, and a school setting called The Chartwell Center in New Orleans.

Because we support so many participants with a range of needs, we have learned that disability looks different for everyone, and it is our goal to help our participants thrive and live their lives to their fullest potential. ESL believes that everyone deserves opportunities to be active and productive members of their communities. We strive to make a life of purpose and independence possible for our participants through our commitment to quality support, innovative service offerings, and continuous organizational evolution. We are seeking mission-driven individuals to join our team, who will help us deliver a life of independence, relationships, and meaning to our participants.
 
Description

Our Support Coordinators (case managers) who serve the OAAS (Office of Aging and Adults Services) population, serve a caseload of about 35-45 participants. These participants live in their homes and communities and receive support (which can be physical, medical, educational, or vocational) to assist them to remain in their desired settings.

All new hires complete an initial training program of about 6 weeks. During this time you will learn how to plan, schedule, and coordinate services to meet our participants' needs. Learning about the OAAS service system and requirements, making monthly calls, quarterly visits, and annual CPOCs (Comprehensive Plan of Care) are all responsibilities our SCs have, along with maintaining any pertinent medical and health information for your assigned participants. Support Coordinators must be agile and responsive in their ability to meet the changing needs of participants and service provision requirements. Support Coordinators are also responsible for the support of participants throughout emergent situations and all public emergencies including weather related evacuations.
