What are the Benefits of Using a PGCM?

Professional Geriatric Care Management services are offered in a variety of settings.  Professional Geriatric Care Managers (PGCMs) can serve the needs of their clients with the following services:

  Personalized and compassionate service -- focusing on the individual's wants and needs.
  Continuity of care management – communications are coordinated between family members, doctors and       other professionals, and service providers.
  Cost containment -- inappropriate placements, duplication of services, and unnecessary hospitalizations       are avoided
  Quality control – care management services follow NAPGCM’S Standards of Practice and Pledge of Ethics

Do I Really Need a Professional Geriatric Care Manager?
When considering engaging the services of a PGCM, you should evaluate whether you have the time, inclination, or skills to manage the challenges of geriatric care.  If you are not sure, ask a trusted advisor to help you decide if an elder care expert may be helpful.  Enlisting the support of other family members to consult a professional is a good way to build a consensus on the solutions


Questions that you may wish to consider:

  Are the problems that you or your loved ones are facing becoming larger and more complex than you can       comfortably manage?

  Are other demands and responsibilities now so great that you are not able to provide the desired level of       supervision and attention to your loved one's problems?
