What is a geriatric care manager?

En español | A geriatric care manager is someone who can be hired for a fee to assess an older person’s social and medical needs, arrange services and monitor care on an ongoing basis. An initial consultation typically runs $175, and hourly fees average $74, according to a recent AARP survey. A well-trained care manager can help individuals remain as independent as possible by assessing the alternatives, whether it’s living at home with assistance or in other situations, such as supportive housing or assisted living facilities.
