This is a very common question. Since most of the time, it is a physician or other health care specialist who recommends us, sharing with your loved one that his/her doctor is emphasizing this course of action can be helpful. Geriatric Case Managers are committed to keeping the older adult aging in place as long as possible so bringing us onboard helps you live longer in your home. Having an advocate who knows local resources can promote better care and prevent unneeded hospitalizations.
