A Brief Message From Ron Goldman
What Is a Geriatric Care Manager?
Lots of people ask me what is a Geriatric Care Manager and what do we do. A Geriatric Care Manager is somebody who can advocate for your loved one when you’re not available and can do anything that you would do for your parents if you lived right next door. We provide all kinds of services that include daily bill paying, continuity of care with doctors, dealing with insurance companies, benefits planning, and power of attorney, really anything that would be necessary to make sure that our clients are being looked after from their perspective. What is in their best interest? Whether that is what medications they are taking, what sorts of tests their doctors are ordering, what types of treatments are being used? Are they getting their full benefits from the VA? Are they safe in their home? If they end up in the emergency room in the middle of the night, who shows up? Making sure that people throughout the community are on the up-and-up in dealing with your loved ones in an honest and honorable way.
We take care of our clients the way we want our parents to be taken care of.
