Our Geriatric Care Services.

 

Are you concerned about the health and well-being of your aging loved ones? Our geriatric care management services are designed to help you make the best possible decisions while providing the support you need.

A geriatric care manager serves as a skilled, independent voice, bringing deep expertise in the latest home care techniques including cutting-edge technology. Geriatric care managers and geriatric care coordinators have years of experience in social work, nursing, gerontology, and/or mental health.

What is Geriatric Care?

Geriatric care is the process of planning and coordinating care of the elderly in a way that meets each individual’s unique long-term care needs. Our geriatric home care managers create customized geriatric care plans, taking each senior into account as a whole person — their needs and wants, what brings them joy, and what will best support their vision for the best possible quality of life.

What is a Geriatric Care Manager?

Integrating knowledge of health, psychology, family dynamics, advocacy and more, each geriatric care manager brings a combination of focus and versatility to helping seniors and their families. Our geriatric care managers have distinguished backgrounds in social work, nursing, mental health and gerontology, and the skills to explore the best options when it comes to the health and well-being of each individual.

Geriatric care management services will:

  • Explore and consider all points of view
  • Devise a geriatric care plan and anticipate needs
  • Use resources to save time and money
  • Provide stability, clarity, and direction

What Does a Geriatric Care Manager Do?

Far from being simply a caregiver, geriatric home care managers are involved in every step of the planning and decision-making process. From the initial home care assessment of a family’s needs through the entire caregiving and geriatric care management services experience, you’ll receive care and attention that honors everyone involved.

A geriatric care manager can help you:

  • Avoid medical emergencies and accidents
  • Protect from physical and financial abuse
  • Improve socialization and engagement
  • Encourage healthy eating and exercise
  • Help pursue passions and interests

Aging Life Care Professionals are a partner to help you make the best decisions and deliver the best solutions for you and your loved one as they age. It’s a holistic approach that respects your values, preferences, and resources.

Why Choose a Professional Geriatric Care Management Agency?

If you’re looking for an approach that’s more comprehensive than placing a caregiver in your loved one’s home, a geriatric home care manager is the ideal solution. Geriatric home care managers provide uninterrupted home care and have the professional tools to help the whole family — not just the elderly individual.

A geriatric care management services agency also offers extensive knowledge of the costs and characteristics of geriatric care and will monitor the services you are getting to ensure the superb quality and personalized touch your family deserves.

We support families across eight functional areas:

  • Health and disability
  • Financial matters
  • Housing questions
  • Resolving family issues
  • Finding local resources

Picking the Right Geriatric Care Solution

To determine the right geriatric care solution, we conduct a thorough needs assessment and then tailor care to each individual. As a first step, we offer a free phone consultation to help you understand if geriatric care management services are the right fit for you and your loved one. If so, we’ll schedule an in-home assessment with a Life Care Manager, after which the Life Care Manager will provide a comprehensive assessment.  From there, each Life Care Manager will devise a geriatric care plan that addresses the present moment, anticipates future needs and provides clarity and direction.
