This article provides a synopsis of a 1987 study of private care management and looks at the reasons why individuals and families seek out and use the services of private care managers. Among the most common reasons are: to negotiate the long-term-care system, to get help in filling out forms, to get objective assistance in assessing options, to mediate family conflict over what to do, and to plan and monitor the care of family members.
