Geriatric Care Manager – Hire One

It worked for me.

A Geriatric Care Manager (GCM) can help give you direction. They can also work with you on an on-going basis.

I hired one to give me advice. We met twice, about 6 months apart.

I explained my situation, asked about specific needs I had, and then listened to her.

The cost was $125 per hour, but she wasn’t watching the clock. It was well worth it. One thing in particular that she helped me with was finding a home care agency that specialized in a way I didn’t know existed. I was able to find someone who my wife accepted.

BTW, they are now called Aging Life Care Professionals. The National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers is now the Aging Life Care Association. You can go to their web site to find out more about their services and to search for someone in your area:
