“My mom has had a sudden and drastic change in her medical condition and I am interested in working with a Geriatric Care Manager. I located your website and found great general information – however, we do not live in your service area. Is there an organization for professional Geriatric Care Managers where I might be able to locate someone locally to provide such services for my mom? And, why might it be important to have a care manager affiliated with the national organization?” Dave from Dalton

Thank you so much for your question and positive feedback about our website. Yes, we belong to a national organization called the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM) – which was founded in 1985 and has helped to enhance professionalism in our discipline of service. Their website is www.caremanager.org.

On this website, there is a searchable database of associated and locally available Geriatric Care Managers.  Those that are certified members of NAPGCM must meet stringent higher level education, supervised experience in the field of aging, and also meet multiple sets of certification requirements. All members are also required to adhere to a strict code of ethics and standards of practice – including respect for dignity, avoiding discrimination, and serving with integrity. Thus, our recommendation to families outside of our service area is to use the website to locate Geriatric Care Managers who have been “pre-screened” by our national and objective organization as appropriate to provide this type of higher level clinical care to your loved one.
