Just a few years ago, there were few if any geriatric care specialists, also frequently referred to as life-care managers, available to assist individuals and families with understanding their choices, assessing levels of care, and other issues. This is no longer the case. Geriatric care managers are prolific and work closely with elder law attorneys to assist them in case management and analysis. Many children and other relatives struggling for years to manage the care of a loved one do so without assistance. This is no longer necessary. Nearly universally, tremendous benefits are derived when the geriatric care nurse/manager becomes involved. If you are providing, managing, or otherwise facilitating the care of someone, or preparing to do so, avail yourself of this valuable resource today. For guidance, you can ask your elder law or estate planning attorney, or your local county Office on Aging.
