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.
