The Caregiver Thinks
• How do I get help for my loved one?
Professional geriatric care managers have the expertise to know community resources, recognize the needs of the older adult, understand family dynamics, and the ability to determine a positive outcome.
• I feel overwhelmed trying to meet the needs of my parents, my children, and my job. How can I get it all done?
Adult children are busy with their own jobs and lives. Geriatric Care Managers can assume some of these burdens.
• How can I get my siblings to understand that our parents need help?
It is difficult for family members to see the gradually increasing needs of their aging parents.
Geriatric Care Managers provide an unbiased source of information and opens up family communication.
• Should I have them move closer?
Families’ living close by doesn’t always provide the solution. Parents may not want to leave their church and friends. Geriatric Care Managers can oversee care for families who are far away.
• What do they want?
