Why should seniors and their families consider Geriatric Care Managers

Seniors and their families should consider Geriatric Care Managers because these professionals provide comprehensive and personalized support that can enhance the quality of life for older adults. Geriatric Care Managers have specialized knowledge and experience in navigating the complex healthcare and social service systems and can help seniors and their families make informed decisions about care options. By working with a Geriatric Care Manager, seniors and their families can access a wide range of services, including care coordination, advocacy, and education, that can improve their health, well-being, and overall satisfaction with care.
  • They are also familiar with senior housing - Many seniors choose to stay in their home, but many choose to move to an assisted living community for day-to-day assistance. Some seniors will require the expanded medical resources that come with a nursing home.These professionals can help families determine which housing option is best for their loved one and find the best community once that decision is made. If aging in place is preferred, managers can help coordinate and monitor in-home care, so it is properly delivered.
  • They can work with their clients once, or in an ongoing manner - Some families only need help with a couple major care decisions and then can take it from there. Other families need their care manager to act as a “professional relative,” providing ongoing assistance with decision making and coordinating.
  • They can be there when family cannot - Senior loved ones may be located thousands of miles away, which makes attentive caretaking impossible. These managers can serve as a liaison for the family, ensuring their healthcare decisions are carried out, even when family can’t be there to make them.
  • They can help families plan for the long term - As seniors age, their healthcare needs change too, and geriatric care managers know this. As such, they can help clients form a long-term plan that makes future decision making much easier. This long-term planning also includes financial guidance, so families won’t be surprised by future healthcare costs.
  • They can be that objective expert that some families need - It’s not uncommon for families to disagree about how their senior family member should be cared for. This can lead to infighting that delays decisions or ensures they are never made.
  • Geriatric care managers consider their senior client first and are trained to handle emotionally charged situations, so they can mediate effectively.

What should seniors look for in Geriatric Care Managers?

There are many benefits to working with these professionals, but like with any medical professional, it’s important to find a care manager your family can trust.

Licensing and Experience

Geriatric care managers are not licensed at the state level, so there isn’t a catch-all license that proves their ability. However, they usually start their careers in healthcare or social work, so they should be licensed in one of these allied fields.

Professional Affiliations

Ideally, the care manager your family selects will have a history of working with senior-focused organizations. This working knowledge is essential to understanding what seniors need and want from their care providers. In Texas, two such organizations are the Texas Guardianship Board and the Texas Assisted Living Association.

Open Communication

Your family’s geriatric care manager is going to be a critical communication link between the healthcare provider and your loved one. It’s essential, then, that they are forthright and easy to communicate with. This is especially important if there are disagreements within the family about how to proceed with care.
