Geriatric Care Management – How We Can Help

A professional geriatric care manager has been educated in various fields of human services — social work, psychology, nursing, gerontology — and trained to assess, plan, coordinate, monitor and provide services for the elderly and their families. Advocacy for older adults is a primary function of the care manager. The care management team assists families in planning and implementing ways to allow for the greatest degree of independence, safety and comfort with their long-term care needs.
