Thank you for welcoming me into your home...
"Aging in Place" is what most older Americans prefer. A professional Elder [Geriatric] Care Manager can assess client's health and their environment to help them secure the care they need to stay in their homes. When possible GCMs help you to see the big picture while we focus on the needed changes that are necessary to accomplish your goal of aging gracefully.
The National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM) Code of Ethics is based on 5 core values of geriatric care management: integrity, loyalty and responsibility, promoting benefit and avoiding harm, respecting the rights and dignity of the individual, and behaving justly.
What are some benefits of using a Professional Elder Care Manager?
- Individualized and compassionate service which focuses on your individual needs and goals.
- Communications are coordinated between family members, doctors and other professionals.
- Cost containment: avoids duplication of services, unnecessary hospitalizations and placements.
