NWRC, a multi-faceted human services agency focused on community-based programs to help elders, people with disabilities, and people living with behavioral health disorders, announced the promotion of Jessica Wight to the newly created Long-Term Care Case Management Director position. “We are delighted to have someone working in this capacity. Jessica will continue to help cultivate strong community relationships while connecting people with the services they need, just as we have been doing here at NWRC for over 20 years, but with increased intention and diversification” said Executive Director, Amanda McDade.
Since joining NWRC in 2006 Jessica has worked as a Case Manager then Care Management Supervisor focusing on long-term care management, individual caregiver oversight, administrative hearing support, and developing, implementing, and analyzing staff training to ensure the delivery of high-quality care. With the increase in Washington’s in-home personal needs allowance, it is anticipated that more people will have access to the care they need. Jessica said she is “looking forward to using the next year to explore and analyze the growing needs of the community to ensure that we expand with intention and NWRC’s traditional focus on reducing barriers and implementing services where clients need them most.”
Since 1971, Northwest Regional Council has been helping seniors, people with complex medical conditions, and their families obtain resources and assistance that promote optimal health, well-being, and independence to improve quality of life in Island, San Juan, Skagit, and Whatcom Counties.
