Geriatric Care Management

Make sure your time is spent with your loved one, not struggling with the healthcare system.

As a parent or loved one ages, the issues of caregiving can become very challenging, involving many complex questions and difficult decisions.

Often families are unprepared, overwhelmed and harbor feelings of guilt about not being able to do it all.  

These feelings are not unusual, it’s an emotional time for family members, with much to learn and important difficult decisions to be made.

Health Care Connect's compassionate Geriatric Care Managers have the solutions you need.  

We provide the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions, allowing you to make the right choices for your loved one. We act as the liaison between the older adult, family members, healthcare providers and the community.

Our Geriatric Care Management Includes:

  • Geriatric assessment to determine care and needs, then develop and implement the care plan.
  • Ongoing care management, reassessing the plan as abilities and needs change.
  • Communicate and coordinate with other professionals, service providers and family members; provide trusted referrals within the community.
  • Collect all medical records, coordinate medical appointments, confer with and facilitate communication among all the physicians, caregivers, home health agencies and hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living and /or rehabilitation facility.
  • Research and assist in transitions from home to assisted living, senior communities and skilled nursing facilities, where we will continue to monitor and oversee care.
  • When hospitalized, our certified patient advocates guide the patient through the healthcare system, ensuring the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options are clearly understood.
  • Make sure all the caregivers are on the same page, treating the whole person, not just the doctor’s specialty.
  • Research illness and disease, ensuring you get the education needed so true “informed consent” can be given.
  • Evaluate discharge plan and refer to appropriate rehabilitation facility. Oversee care plan at rehabilitation facility.
  • Evaluate home and arrange for home care, nursing, therapist, aides, equipment, then manage and oversee the care.

Get the peace of mind you need, knowing that your loved one has a certified professional managing and monitoring their care.

Long Distance Care Assistance

Has distance become an issue when caring for your loved one?
We can serve as your feet on the ground, ready to respond and advocate in a medical crisis.

Jackie O'Doherty helped out during a very stressful period for me and my daughter. When my daughter was diagnosed with thyroid tumors after a routine physical, we turned to Jackie for help in finding a pediatric endocrinologist -- not an easy proposition.

I consider myself lucky the day I was referred to Jacqueline. She was not only professional and detail oriented and I knew I could count on her to get anything done, but she did it with a caring and warmth towards me and my mother that was greatly appreciated. I would recommend her highly to anyone in need of this type of service.

When Carol's pain was intolerable and we were absolutely exhausted, it seemed like all we hit were dead ends until we met Jackie. she was an angel disguised as our health care advocate in our desperate last months of need. Oh! How i wish we found her so much earlier. Jackie managed all aspects of Carol's care getting us nurses and health aids over the holidays when hospice claimed they had no one. She made things happen, when we had no place else to go, so all we needed to do was be there for Carol, in her last hours. Jackie was truly a blessing.

Dear Jackie, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your invaluable assistance in expediting hospice care for my wife, Carol. Although we were eventually very satisfied with the home health aids, nurses, equipment and supplies provided, it was only after your intervention on our behalf that timely and complete services became the norm. Your prompt and decisive actions on our behalf really made a difference. On behalf my daughter, Lara and our entire family, I offer you our gratitude and best wishes.
