Geriatric Care Management

Case Management

 

Who can benefit from our Geriatric Care Management (GCM) Program:
"Hiring a geriatric care manager in the town where your older relative resides is a preventative and prudent idea. If there is a crisis, it is cheaper to have a GCM solve it. In an urgent situation, a care manager can go to the hospital or emergency room. This is saner and more cost-effective than you getting on last-minute, expensive flights. You can still go but they can immediately be there to deal with the crisis. They are good insurance. Before any crisis,  the GCM do an initial assessment and visit your long-distance older relative periodically (once a month, once every two months).This is preventative. That way they are there for you when you need them and have all the information to solve the problem.”
~ Cathy Cress- Expert in Aging Life Care
