When do you need a Geriatric Care Manager?
Caring for an elderly loved one can be confusing, frustrating and overwhelming. How do you choose the best form of care, the right living situation? How will you find the time to make phone calls, contact government agencies and visit alternative living facilities?
Where do you begin?
By calling a geriatric care manager who will work with you and guide you. I have over twenty years in geriatrics/ elder care. I will be your consultant, problem solver, and advocate.

After a free phone consultation, I will meet with you and your loved one and sensitively and thoroughly assess his or her overall situation. I look at the whole person, addressing quality of life concerns.
I will then develop a plan which will enable you to choose the optimal form of care.
I will make the necessary contacts for you.
I can arrange for care at home or accompany you as you visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities and will arrange for placement.
As an expert in all aspects of geriatric care, I can coordinate your loved one's care and act as a liaison with family, friends and health care providers, now and in the future.
I also provide counseling and support for you and the family, as well as for your loved one, as you deal with these difficult and stressful transitions.
