What is a Geriatric Care Manager?
A Geriatric Care Manager, or “GCM”, is a professional who specializes in assisting older persons and their families in meeting their day-to-day and long-term care needs. Most Geriatric Care Managers have training from bachelor degrees to multiple doctorates in gerontology, social work, psychology, and Nursing (RN Care Managers). Geriatric Care Managers, also known as Elder Care Specialists, are a newly recognized profession that is rapidly developing to help families adjust and cope with the challenges of an aging loved one.
Determining appropriate living arrangements and necessary supportive assistance are among the many services they offer. Care managers also provide needs analysis, screening, arranging, and monitoring in-home help, counseling and support including family conflict mediation and crisis intervention. In addition they arrange for legal, financial, and medical services, evaluate housing options, and assist with relocating an older person to the most appropriate setting. They act as liaisons to families who are separated by long distances from their elderly loved ones making sure they are managing well, and alerting them to any concerns or problems that may arise. Geriatric Care Managers have extensive knowledge about the services and resources in their communities.
