Find a Geriatric Care Manager to Develop a Senior Care Plan by State or Zip.
Geriatric Care Managers (or GCMs) help families with an immediate care need to create and implement long term care plans. This includes an in-person needs assessment, the development and review of a care plan and arranging and monitoring care services. Some also do financial planning. Though most are not professionally certified and their planning services might be better desribed as "resource assessments." GCMs do not usually provide hands-on care.
Local government agencies, such as the Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs), may provide public services similiar to those of private GCMs. One should be aware that these agencies often have heavy workloads and may not be able to offer the same level of expertise and commitment that a private GCM can provide.
How They Work
Some larger GCM organizations have an “intake manager” that manages the introductory calls. But all organizations permit direct conversations between the family and GCM before any formal engagement occurs.
