Geriatric Care Management
Free Initial Consultation
Most older adults prefer to stay as independent as they can, for as long as they can, in the comfort of home. As care needs increase, adult children of aging parents often feel overwhelmed by the tasks that lay ahead. Arranging for care can be especially daunting for adult children who work full time jobs, care for children of their own, live far away, or simply lack the information they need to make informed decisions. Similarly, spouses of aging relatives tend to grow frustrated when they, too, struggle with managing daily affairs or activities of daily living.
Hiring a geriatric care manager can offer much needed support in times like these. Services are delivered by a compassionate geriatric social worker who is available to visit your loved one 24 hrs a day/7 days a week. Fluent in Medicare, Medicaid, community resources, housing, legal and medical matters impacting New York City's elderly, the care manager is able to navigate a complex service delivery system in a timely manner. Care plans are always custom made and sensitive to the unique preferences and personality of our clients. As a result, family members are put at ease knowing that their loved one has a competent, caring and knowledgeable advocate by their side.
According to the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers: www.caremanager.org
"Professional geriatric care management is a holistic, client-centered approach to caring for older adults or others facing ongoing health challenges. Working with families, geriatric care manager expertise provides the answers at a time of uncertainty. Their guidance leads families to the actions and decisions that ensure quality care and an optimal life for those they love, thus reducing worry, stress and time off of work for family caregivers."
