Elder Care Managers

Sometimes called a geriatric care manager, this elder care professional is trained in geriatrics, social work, nursing or counseling. He or she will conduct a thorough patient assessment to identify needs and develop an appropriate plan of care for your loved one. They can also screen and supervise professional caregivers; coordinate medical care; pay bills; and act as a liaison with your family. Depending on your needs, they can also screen and supervise other qualified people to help with housekeeping, laundry, shopping, maintenance and repairs; review applicable financial and legal issues and offer referrals to geriatric specialists; and assist with a change of living arrangements, if that is most appropriate.
