FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS?

 

1. Do I Need a Professional Geriatric Care Manager?

Yes!

  • Yes - if you feel that the problems that you or your loved ones are facing becoming larger and more complex than you are comfortably able to manage!  This may be failing physical or mental health, dementia, and increased resistance to help.
  • Yes - if there has been a medical emergency and the need to address living and health situations has increased requiring immediate care needs and changes in long-term planning.
  • Yes - if there has been a loss of a spouse or other caregiver.  Another reason to call may be due to a change in the family living situation, such as adult children moving away.
  • Yes - if other demands and responsibilities are now so great that you are not able to provide the desired level of supervision and attention to your loved one’s problems.  As care needs increase, some become overwhelmed and stress can take a toll. 
  • Yes - if you are looking for information or experiencing information overload.  Too much information can be as overwhelming as not enough information.  We can help guide you through the maze of healthcare services available and help find the best solutions for the situations.
