How can geriatric care management help us make decisions for mom or dad?

Do you and your siblings disagree on what would work for your parents? Professional geriatric care management can provide objective information. It is the process of planning and coordinating the care of the elderly and disabled to improve their quality of life and maintain their independence for as long as possible. Health and psychological care are integrated with the best possible combination of services such as: housing, home care services, socialization programs, financial and legal planning.

A geriatric case manager can prepare a care plan tailored for your family member's circumstances after a comprehensive assessment. Professional geriatric care managers accomplish this by combining a working knowledge of health and psychology, human development, family dynamics, public and private resources and funding sources while advocating for the individual throughout the continuum of care.

The care plan is modified when necessary based on the professional geriatric care manager's monitoring of the effectiveness of the components of the care plan.
