When You Need Help with Care Giving

By July 26, 2011 September 13th, 2019 No Comments

At 101 Mobility, we are strong believers in helping people to maintain their independence for as long as possible. We provide a wide variety of mobility products that are designed to increase our customer’s quality of life and help them to age in place.  Helping our customers to live in the homes they love and continue to enjoy their lives, their neighbors and their routines is part of why we love our jobs!

However, we also realize that there comes a time when it can be impossible to continue living in our homes; when sometimes we just need too much help with the day to day tasks of living. For some it can be a difficult to know when that time actually has come.  With the help of a Geriatric Care Manager, it can be easier to make the difficult decision to move or get in-home help.

A Geriatric Care Manager is trained in several fields including nursing, gerontology, social work and/or psychology and specializes in aging and elder care.  A Geriatric Care Manger works with families to navigate the often challenging world of care assessments, screening services, help with reviewing financial, legal or medical issues and so much more. For those who are dealing with long distance care issues, a Geriatric Care Manger can be a family liaison, providing help and acting as a resource for out of town family members.

For more information on how a Geriatric Care Manager might benefit you or a member of your family, please visit the website for the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers.
