Careers in Care Management
What does it take to enter the field of geriatric care management? Like any profession it’s a combination of education, experience, credentials — and vision.
Geriatric care managers work in a diversity of settings and the profession is growing tremendously.
Most geriatric care managers work for themselves as independent business owners, with a larger firm, or within another agency.
A geriatric care manager is defined as a health and human services specialist who helps families who are caring for older relatives. The geriatric care manager is trained and experienced in any of several fields related to long-term care, including: nursing, gerontology, social work, psychology, or case management with a specialized focus on issues related to aging and elder care.
