Geriatric Care Manager Role
One of our primary goals is to maintain the older adult at a maximum level of independence so he or she can remain safely at home for as long as possible. Thus, we usually begin with a comprehensive assessment of physical, psychological, social, nutritional, cognitive, environmental and other healthcare issues to determine which services will best meet his or her needs. We also strongly consider the client’s wishes and financial situation.
We then work collaboratively with family, primary caregivers, friends, physicians and other professionals involved with the client to develop and implement the best care plan for that individual.
With no task too big or small, we will gladly assist in coordinating everything that can impact the client’s life – from negotiating the healthcare system and facilitating the use of appropriate community services, to paying bills and arranging for grocery shopping.
