We specialize in aiding families who are caring for older adults to insure the maximum functional potential is reached on a daily basis. As an experienced guide, educator and resource for families of older adults, especially those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease or Parkinson or exhibiting symptoms of dementia, Certified Geriatric Care Managers (CGCMs) can develop a plan for a better quality of life.
My knowledge of our local resources help find solutions that without a CGCM are challenging and time consuming. I am a member of the Aging Life Care Association with a commitment to adhering to the ALCA Code of ethics and Standards of Practice.
When families seek help from a Certified Geriatric Care Manager, it is often during a time of turmoil, transition or crisis. A Certified Geriatric Care Manager acts as an advocate for older adults during these difficult times. We help identify areas of concern, coordinate appropriate services and can help extend a senior’s ability to age in place. A CGCM can help piece together the ‘puzzle’ of navigating longevity by simplifying the complex process of aging. Planning ahead with the aid of a CGCM provides countless options for seniors and their families, while avoiding the possible crises in the lives of a frail elder.
