The Aging Life Care Specialist (formerly known as a Geriatric Care Manager) receives inquiries from adult children or other family members (including those living at a distance from their elders), and referrals from attorneys, hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, community agencies, employee assistance programs, and the general public.
Throughout the elder care process, many find it helpful to bring in a professional with expertise in senior care issues. An Aging Life Care Specialist assists older people and their families with long-term care arrangements. Private aging life care specialists remain independent of the resources they recommend in order to provide an unbiased assessment of the situation.
We can help you meet the challenges of long-distance caregiving, put together a comprehensive plan for present or future needs, provide extra assistance for relocation, or monitor your relative during your vacation.
Aging Life Care Specialists can:
- Conduct care-planning assessments to identify problems, and a need for services
- Coordinate and monitor senior services, such as home care
- Act as a liaison to families at a distance
- Offer counseling, support, and advocacy
- Provide information, referral, and placement
- Offer crisis intervention and care management services
