A geriatric care manager is a professional who specializes in assisting older people and their families in meeting their long-term care arrangements. GCM’s have training in gerontology, social work, nursing, or counseling.

GCM members can help: Some GCM’s also provide family or individual therapy, money management, and conservatorship or guardianship assistance. GCM’s have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of services in their community. One call to a GCM will connect you with the services an older person may need.
