Getting the Right Help Right Away: Geriatric Care Management
Overwhelmed by the care and financial needs for an elderly, mentally ill, or developmentally disabled loved one? Geriatric care management may be an invaluable option.
In a nutshell, geriatric care management involves assisting families through health care and other important services such as housing, home care, nutrition, socialization, psychological/psychiatric needs and some assistance with financial and legal planning.
Trish Colucci of Peace Aging Care Experts, LLC of Flanders, New Jersey describes geriatric care management as health and human services specialists who act as guides and advocates for families who are caring for older relatives, friends, and wards. Typically, geriatric care managers are “educated and experienced in any of several fields relating to aging life care, such as nursing, gerontology, social work, or psychology with a specialized focus on issues related to aging and elder care.”
