Service Details

Description

Aging life care managers act as guides and advocates for older people and their families.


Also known as senior care managers or geriatric care managers, these experts help older adults live at home rather than in a facility. They can provide any of the following services, although this is not an exhaustive list:
* In-home assessment and monitoring
* Planning and problem-solving
* Match needs and services
* Coordinate care
* Support family caregivers
* Assist with transitions to and from facilities outside the home


These professionals typically have a background in social work, psychology, nursing, or gerontology. They also have specific expertise in assessing, planning, and serving the needs of older adults.


Additional Information

Individual needs assessments determine and coordinate the resources needed to keep Steele County seniors healthy, safe and independent in their own homes.


The service team helps identify areas of daily life where support may be needed by:
* Suggesting trusted, affordable resources for chores, financial help, personal care, activities, transportation, medical or legal issues, and more
* Apply for government or other programs to help pay for services
* Locate housing alternatives such as assisted living, subsidized apartments or senior living communities
* Navigate life changes and help with planning for future needs


They can also assist with securing needed services and managing those services over the course of care.
