WHAT IS A GERIATRIC CARE MANAGER?
What are some practical ways I can help you?
I MEET with your loved one to evaluate his/her physical, emotional, and social requirements and make appropriate recommendations based on my assessment.
I COORDINATE and participate in all introductory hospital, memory care, skilled nursing or assisted living facility meetings with you and your family.
I HELP you and your family determine if In-Home geriatric care services are feasible and appropriate.
(If your loved one will remain at home, I provide skilled, hands-on safety training on any medical equipment that will be required. I also make recommendations for simple modifications to the home to ensure that care is safe and secure.)
I ACT as your designated point of emergency contact for your loved one’s facility if you are on vacation or unavailable.
I PROVIDE practical insight and advice on how to protect your loved one’s finances for their ongoing care needs.
