Geriatric Care Management

By partnering with the older adults we serve, as well as their families, our professional geriatric care managers work to identify needs with a thorough assessment that covers physical safety, nutrition, cognition, social wellness, medical history, and the legal and financial situation.

Once this information is gathered, a customized plan of care is developed and may include:

Geriatric care managers compassionately assist with sensitive issues such as:

  • Hospital discharges
  • Nursing home placement
  • Driver cessation
  • Family conflict resolution
  • Guardianship
  • Concerns of abuse or neglect

Jewish Family Service works closely with the Jewish Hospice & Chaplaincy Network to connect families to culturally- and religiously-sensitive resources and services for end-of-life issues.
