Arranging Services / Implementing the Geriatric Care Plan

geriatric care

Having a road map in life would inevitably cut down on costly mistakes. This is why a Health Care Advocate / Geriatric Care Manager usually starts by performing an assessment and writing up a concise Care Plan for the client and their family.

This Care Plan provides short and long term elder care considerations that will guide families along their journey as their loved one ages.

This can include:

  • Determining if staying at home or moving to a senior care community is the best option

  • Locating the most reliable, trustworthy elder care services in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul for staying at home

  • Selecting a Home Care Provider: reviewing rates, hours of service, service agreement and providing occasional or ongoing wellness checks

  • Learning about the continuum of care, finding an alternative Minnesota housing community (independent housing, assisted living, memory care / residential care homes, nursing home care, hospice) and creating a plan to move your loved one

  • Locating other senior community services to provide more care options, different eldercare support services as various other Geriatric Care Management needs arise

When a Care Plan is requested, MN Senior Care Partners meets with families for roughly 2-4 hours depending upon the complexity of the case, if it’s a solo or couple Care Plan and what’s requested of the Care Manager during this initial meeting.

Then, a Care Plan is created and sent to the family to review. Follow up meetings or phone call consultation is available as needed on an ongoing basis.
