Care Management

Navigating the maze of medical and social services can be overwhelming. Care managers help clients and family members identify needs and find, apply for, and coordinate services. They can assist to resolve problems with care providers and make adjustments to care plans as situations evolve. Geriatric care managers, who often have nursing or social work backgrounds, specialize in working with older adults and their families.
