A private case manager, or better known as a geriatric care manager, is a licensed professional — usually, a nurse, social worker, or psychologist — who specializes in geriatrics and acts as a professional relative to help you and your family identify needs, assess them and find ways to meet them. These professionals lead you to take necessary actions and decisions to ensure quality care and happy life for your senior loved one. They work with you to create a long-term care plan best suited to your family member’s needs and manage all aspects of the care, from providing care services to handling emergencies to solving family disputes, to ensure that they remain in the best of health. They are especially helpful when you live away from your loved one who needs care at home.
