Care management services are offered in a variety of settings. We believe the model utilized by GCM members best serves the clients and their representatives. Practitioners can offer:
  • Short-term or ongoing assistance for long-distance caregivers.
  • Personalized, gentle services specifically to meet the client’s wants and needs.
  • Accessibility since many GCM members are available after hours and on weekends.
  • Continuity of care management to reduce miscommunications, time, stress, and cost to clients.
  • Efficiency and flexibility because GCM services are stream-lined and client-centered, not complicated by bureaucratic red tape.
  • Cost-control. GCM members strive to reduce inappropriate institutional care and overuse of services. They match the service to the client’s needs and help contain costs. Ongoing monitoring can prevent costly crises and unnecessary hospitalizations.
  • Quality control. GCM has adopted standards of practice for all its members. In addition, all full members are reviewed for educational and experience requirements prior to acceptance.

To obtain the names of professional care managers in your vicinity you may visit the Web sites of those GCM chapters where applicable:

For those areas of the country that do not have a chapter with on-line accessibility a Consumer Directory is available for purchase through the national GCM office.

GCM Consumer Directory: The National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (GCM) has developed a Geriatric Care Managers Resource Guide and Directory to assist consumers in finding qualified geriatric care managers. The list included in the directory is not an exhaustive listing of all the geriatric care managers throughout the country, but rather a listing of care managers who belong to GCM.

This directory lists members of GCM who are expected to subscribe to the standards of practice of their respective professions, as well as to the pledge of ethics and 13 standards of practice developed specifically for their practices in geriatric care management. A copy of the pledge of ethics and standards of practice are available on this Web site. Listing in the directory is not to be taken as an individual endorsement or statement of qualification by GCM. It is recommended that consumers or professionals using the directory perform their own interview of the care manager to determine their qualifications.

The directory lists care managers by state and is alphabetized by the GCM member’s last name. The listing includes the members’ name, company, company address, phone and fax number (if applicable). Also included after the members’ names are their credentials (abbreviations which include degrees earned, licenses, certifications and designations) and we have included an index and description of credentials in the section prior to the member listing. Cost: $15.00 each
