What Does a Geriatric Consultant Do?

A Geriatric Consultant is a professional facilitator who can give advice and provide information about the variety of options available in their area for elder care and services. Care Managers are not only experts in the services available; they also know the quality and costs of different providers.  When a change of living situation is needed, Care Managers can help families think through the options and arrange for the right move.

How Can a Geriatric Consultant Help?

The first step a Geriatric Consultant takes is to conduct an assessment to identify the elder's needs, problems, and their eligibility for assistance.  Then, they will suggest a plan to meet those needs.  The knowledge and experience Geriatric Consultants have about the field of elder care and give peace of mind to you and your loved ones.  Care Management can help you and your loved ones have less stress and more confidence that you are getting the best options in elder care.

What Can I Expect From A Geriatric Consultant?

Geriatric Consultants are professinals who understand that aging is a difficult and challenging time for you or your loved one.  A Geriatric Consultant knows that building trust is a part of the job.  Before elders and their families' contract for a formal assessment, the Geriatric Consultant will talk with the elder and/or their family about how care management works.  They will answer any questions and will set up a time to do a formal assessment of needs if you or your loved one is ready.
