Geriatric Care Manager & Case Management

Why Is having a Geriatric Care Manager Important?

Are you an older adult or responsible for caring for someone who is?  If so, collaborating with aging life care professionals like Andrea for case management can yield significant advantages.

Geriatric care planning and case management offer professional guidance and are essential in promoting a person’s well-being. Geriatric care managers help maintain the independence of older adults and address possible challenges that can develop with aging.

Care plans from registered nurses and expert social workers are a road map for the future.  They encompass diagnoses, medications, healthcare options, financial planning, advanced directives such as a Maryland MOLST Form, and environmental safety – all supporting the aging process.

A comprehensive approach allows for personalized care, proactive preparation, optimal health outcomes, and enhanced communication among healthcare professionals, caregivers, and family members, leading to more coordinated and effective care.

What To Expect

Initial visit:

Andrea will conduct a comprehensive home visit to provide a holistic and thorough assessment, incorporating the importance of a person’s overall well-being.

During the visit, Andrea will perform a physical examination, including vital signs, and gather a detailed medical history.  This comprehensive understanding of current and past health conditions allows for accurately identifying needs and potential risks.

A detailed assessment of the individual’s level of functioning is conducted.  By gathering this information, a personalized plan can be developed to address challenges, improve health, wellness, and overall care.

An environmental screening is also completed to identify possible safety concerns and establish an optimal and conducive environment for aging in place.

A customized geriatric care plan is developed, encompassing essential instructions to optimize your loved one’s well-being, promoting comfort, safety, and overall quality of life throughout the aging journey.  

Follow-up visits:

Through Andrea’s expertise and attention to detail, the in-home visit encompasses a comprehensive assessment and a careful evaluation of the geriatric care plan.  This ensures that the individual’s evolving needs are met, providing them with the best care.

How Often Are the Visits?

The frequency of medical appointments for aging life care managers depends on the specific conditions and requirements.  Typically, Andrea visits monthly but if the patient is experiencing a change in their physical or cognitive status, visits are adjusted as needed.  Care managers ensure they receive appropriate medical services and timely care by remaining flexible and responsive to the patient’s evolving needs and emotional concerns.
