Sandy/Draper, UT– Geriatric Care Management

Geriatric care management (GCM) provides assistance for you and your loved ones in finding resources, making decisions, and managing stress.
It provides “one stop shopping” for care.

BrightStar Care Geriatric Care Managers can provide assistance with:

  • Assessment and monitoring – full geriatric assessments (medical, functional, care needs, falls, 1mcognitive, etc.) at each visit
  • Long term planning – helping the client and family look ahead and anticipate future needs and options for care and placement
  • Health Education – adapted to the client’s current health status to assist in enhancing health and preventing health problems in the future
  • Family caregiver coaching — coaching of family members to assist with improving the safety and well-being of the client
  • Home care services – determining types of services (skilled, unskilled, respite, volunteer, etc.)
    that are right for the client and family to engage and monitor those services
  • Medical management –monitoring adherence to medical orders, medications, treatment and physician instructions
  • Communication – keeping family members and professionals informed as to the client’s well-being and changing needs
  • Social activities – providing information on social, recreational, and/or cultural activities to enrich the quality of the client’s life
  • Community Programs – providing information on federal and state entitlements; connecting families to programs for which they qualify

Safety and security – monitoring the client at home; recommending technologies to add to security or safety; observing changes and potential risks of exploitation or abuse
