Looking for an Elder Caregiver or Care Manager?

Marilyn Brohm |

Over the years, clients have occasionally asked us if we knew anyone would who could help them manage elder care services for themselves or their parents or relatives.

We asked our guest speaker Eileen Dunn at the LTC event for recommendations. She suggested utilizing a Geriatric Care Manager via the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers, http://www.caremanager.org.

So what is Geriatric Care Manager?

A Geriatric Care Manager is a health and human services specialist who acts as a guide and advocate for families who are caring for older relatives or disabled adults. The Geriatric Care Manager is educated and experienced in any of several fields related to care management, including, but not limited to nursing, gerontology, social work, or psychology, with a specialized focus on issues related to aging and elder care. They also have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in their communities. (source: http://www.caremanager.org)
