Health and Wellness Team

MonmouthCares has expanded our services, integrating a Health and Wellness team that works alongside our care managers to address chronic medical conditions along with their emotional, behavioral, intellectual/developmental, and substance use needs. This health and wellness team is comprised of a Nurse and Wellness Coach that joins each family's team.
