A Partner In Care - Geriatric Care Managers

As I have progressed in my journey as an elder law attorney, one of the resources I have been most excited to discover are the geriatric care managers. Geriatric care managers specialize in guiding families through the medical and long term care maze. With backgrounds in social work, gerontology and/or health care, they understand both the system and the lingo. They can step in and create order out of what can feel like chaos for patients or their families trying to decipher a medical diagnosis, choose an assisted living community or just put together the best plan of action going forward. They can also be instrumental in monitoring the plan and determining when the plan needs to be tweaked or when a new plan needs to be considered.

When a potential client comes into my office, one of the first questions I now find myself asking them is whether they are working with a geriatric care manager. I ask because it is more difficult to help them put a legal plan in place for themselves or their loved one if we are not sure what level of care we are talking about planning for and how long it will be before that potential level of care changes.

For the patients and families that use their services, I have found the geriatric care managers to be an invaluable partner in care. They can be especially helpful as the eyes and ears for concerned family members who live in a different town than Mom or Dad. It is important however to make sure that the geriatric care manager is certified. One way to find a certified geriatric care manager is to check the website of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (www.caremanager.org).
