A geriatric care manager is a professional, such as a social worker, counsellor, nurse, or gerontologist who specializes in assisting older people and their families to attain the highest quality of life given the circumstances. For a fee, they provide short-term or ongoing assistance for long distance caregivers or others requiring assistance. This is a private service and it is not covered by OHIP.
May include: assessment; care planning; screening; arrangement and monitoring of in-home help and related services; financial and legal services; conservation of funds; information and referral; education and advocacy; individual and family counselling; crisis intervention; placement and relocation.

Registered social workers or occupational therapists will meet with you and your family in your home to discuss and identify areas of concern. We will identify community resources and access publicly available services whenever possible. We liaise with your medical team, family members and involved service providers to ensure a coordinated approach to service delivery. We will develop a Wellness Plan that identifies areas of need and the local resources to address your concerns.
Monthly Wellness Monitoring also available – especially helpful for adult children living away from their parents who are in need of services.
