Geriatric Care Management

Which Direction Do I Go From Here?

It can be overwhelming for a family to make decisions regarding the care of an older loved one. Many times families don’t know where to start, how to find services, or understand the resources available to them. Our Geriatric Care Management program can help you navigate the road map of decisions and tasks related to the care of the aging adult in your life. Working with families, our care manager’s expertise provides the answers at a time of uncertainty.

Let us be the expert and sort out the details for you. The program provides families with the appropriate resources and support which ensure quality care for loved ones while providing caregivers peace of mind.

Our Geriatric Care Management program provides:

Comprehensive Assessment: Your Care Manager uses a holistic approach to assess the entire person and situation including the living environment, financial situation, personal care needs, and physical and emotional health.

Relocation and Residential Options: Your care manager can help you evaluate your current living situation, assist you in determining the best residential options and provide relocation assistance as needed. These residential options may include independent living, continuing care retirement communities, assistive living, memory care, personal care homes and/or skilled nursing facilities.

Personalized Care Plan: Your Care Manager addresses current concerns and helps prepare you for future needs. The Care Manager is available to provide a one-time assessment or on-going care management depending on your needs or those of your loved one.

Health Care Coordination: The Care Manager acts as a liaison and advocate between you and your health care providers and physicians. She can also assist with and ensure compliance of physician recommendations and orders.

Home Safety Evaluation: Your Care Manager can help evaluate and identify certain hazards in the home and make recommendations for modifications which ensure you and/or your loved one’s safety.

Crisis Intervention: Your Care Manager will offer support and reassurance during times of transitions and life challenges. She will be available to provide counsel, recommend options and support caregivers during what can be a stressful and emotional period.

Caregiver Support and Respite: The Care Manager identifies and facilitates the use of community resources including education, respite and support programs which reduce the stress of caregiving on families.
