Geriatric Care Management is a field in the health and human services that is dedicated to assisting families who are caring for older relatives, and assisting older people who lack family support or involvement. Family members who are caring for a senior relative often need assistance or have questions about the best practices, and a care manager can help.
Geriatric care managers are trained in any of several fields related to long-term care. These can include nursing, gerontology, social work, psychology or case management, with a specialized focus on issues related to aging and elder care. In addition to their training, care managers have years of experience caring for seniors in a variety of situations.

"Carole visited my mother while she was recuperating after hip surgery in a local skilled nursing facility. Carole was able to analyze Mom's physical situation while visiting as a friend with a willingness to listen and help. During the course of a few visits, Carole was able to elicit information that allowed her to make recommendations for my mother which would provide comfort mentally, physically and personally. Mom was thrilled with the personal CD player that Carole recommended and then gave to her so that she could enjoy listening to her favorite classical music CD's during her long days away from her home. Not only did this gift bring Mom relaxation and enjoyment, but the earphones also served well to block out the noisy roommate whose complaining was becoming quite obtrusive! It's the little things that count! Thank you, Carole, for noticing the little things."
