What is Geriatric Care Management?

Care management is a guide for families experiencing changes due to the effects of various disease processes. These services are intended to support families through the decision-making process in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for that particular family.

A professional care manager works with the family in a variety of ways:

  • Act as an advocate for the client to make sure their voice is heard throughout the process.
  • Help arrange care following a hospital or skilled nursing discharge, including caregiver interviews to make sure they are a good fit for the client's needs and wants.
  • Deliver care options including skilled nursing, assisted living, board & care, adult day care, home care and hospice.
  • Investigate insurance coverage including Medicare and Long-Term Care Insurance.
  • Educate family caregivers on a variety of disease processes including caregiving, stroke, cancer, Alzheimer's Disease and other types of dementia.
  • Attend medical appointments to enable the efficient transfer of information between client, caregivers, family and doctors.
  • Assist the client's caregivers to help ensure proper follow-through of physicians' orders.
  • Work alongside trust officers, conservators and other fiduciaries to manage the client's health care needs.
  • Work within the dynamics of the individual family to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.
