Description of Service
Our Professional Geriatric Care Manager will meet with the elder client and family to discuss their concerns with caring for their older loved one. Meetings are conveniently scheduled to fit into the family's busy personal and professional life. In the event that a relative is not available for a personal meeting, consultation will be made via telephone.
During the consultation a thorough assessment is performed which includes a review of the person’s health history, cognitive and emotional testing, their management or medications and ability to handle daily activities. Additional information concerning the client’s financial status, social contacts and legal matters is also obtained.
At the conclusion of the consultation the care manager will discuss with the client and /or family a short and long term plan of care. Decisions for follow up assistance will be determined at that time. Follow-up phone contact is continued approximately every 2 weeks to discuss how well the plan of care is meeting the older client’s needs and to identify any additional issues that need to addressed.
The Professional Geriatric Care Manager will assist the client and/or family with identifying the services needed to maintain their health and safety.
