Here’s what we look for in a Professional Geriatric Care Manager:
You are someone a family could turn to in a caregiving crisis and feel absolutely reassured.

You can communicate with a variety of parties (doctors, lawyers, trust officers, family members, elder clients, caregivers, etc.) verbally and in writing, with confidence.
You are PROACTIVE, in making suggestions to improve clients’ quality of life, offering services and ideas because you anticipate problems (or ways to just make things go more smoothly). You must be stellar at time management and handling different roles. You may not always have the immediate answer, but you have the skills to find the answer and come up with creative solutions.
