Geriatric Care Manager

Who They Are and What They Do…

Geriatric care managers are degreed, licensed and certified specialists who assist seniors and disabled individuals and their families in meeting their long term care needs. Most geriatric care managers have training in gerontology, social work, nursing, and/or counseling. They have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of services in their communities. By evaluating an individual’s level of health, emotional state, finances and their legal documents, the manager can help to identify problems and offer timely, practical and cost effective solutions.
