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.
MN Senior Care Partners (MSCP) guides families, caregivers and older adults through the elder care process by offering private geriatric care management.
In addition to older adults, private care management also serves adults with disabilities or with chronic illnesses.
Their role is to be your advocate as you navigate the complexities of the senior industry. At the first complimentary meeting, they will take the time to listen, understand your needs and the needs of your loved ones, and come up with a care plan that best suits those needs.
MSCP can help to sift through care options and identify which ones are the best choices for you and your family.
They help by:
* Conducting an individual evaluation
* Arranging services and implementing the care plan
* Coordinating sporadic or frequent visits
* Completing short-term consultation
* Implementing long-distance advocacy
* Outlining legal and financial issues
* Educating you on advance directives
* Facilitating family care conferences
* Providing advocacy at various appointments

An age-related, non-reversible brain disorder that develops over a period of years.

Alzheimer's disease is one of a group of disorders called dementias that are characterized by cognitive and behavioral problems. It is the most common cause of dementia among people age 65 and older.
An acquired reduction in mental capacity that is characterized by impairment of memory, judgment and intellectual functioning which is often accompanied by behavioral disturbances.
