Geriatric Care Management is a process that entails the coordination of managing all aspects of a senior’s care. A Geriatric Care Manager is a professional who has been trained in nursing, social work, and gerontology and understands the unique concerns and needs of an elderly person who is trying to make sense of their journey through aging while maintaining their independence for as long as possible. A Geriatric Care Manager will do a comprehensive assessment of an elderly person’s demographics, health history, and social and financial history. They will evaluate a senior’s medication needs and their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) capability, including whether they are a fall risk, need help with bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting, and cognition. From there, a Geriatric Care Manager will be able to put together a care plan according to the senior’s specific needs, which will be continuously monitored and adjusted as their circumstances and abilities change. A Geriatric Care Manager is especially helpful to folks who have complicated health issues because they understand medical terms and can be an advocate when accompanying the patient to doctor’s appointments while also being able to help the senior understand what was said by their physician. Geriatric Care Managers are services that are not typically covered by insurance or Medicare, so seniors and their families will likely need to pay out of pocket.
