Not just about Geriatric Care Management…
Geriatric Care Management (also known as “elder care management”, “senior health care management” and “professional care management”) is the process of planning and coordinating care of the elderly and others with physical and/or mental impairments to meet their long term care needs, improve their quality of life, and maintain their independence for as long as possible. It entails working with persons of old age and their families in managing, rendering and referring various types of health and social care services.
Whew! After saying all of that, CoverageComplete, Inc., after reviewing your needs and wants, may recommend a Geriatric Care Manager to provide hands on oversight for your loved one. This may be from a day-to-day basis or on as an “as needed basis”. You may need someone to attend MD visits or to be available when you aren’t in town to address visits or emergency situations. Their background consists of either nurses, social workers, or other healthcare providers. If you think of hiring a care manager, please make sure they possess the clinical background that you need. They can assist with oversight of home health services, or any other needs that may arise.
As we are experienced in Geriatric Care Management, if that need arises, we can assist you in choosing the right one for you.
