Geriatric case managers act as guides and advocates, helping seniors, the disabled and their families find the services they need. Also known as geriatric care managers, these professionals may be trained as social workers, nurses, gerontologists, therapists or psychologists, but they all specialize in fields related to elder care and aging. Their focus lies in helping family members who care for older or disabled adults to:

  • Access appropriate resources
  • Make decisions about care
  • Help manage stress

In addition, geriatric case managers may:

  • Coordinate care and service delivery
  • Make assessments
  • Monitor needs
  • Act as advocates
  • Create treatment and care plans
  • Improve the quality of life for seniors and their families

Look for geriatric case managers who belong to the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers; NAPGCM members have met strict education, experience and certification requirements and adhere to high practical standards.
