Certified Care Management

The Certified Care Manager (CM) is focused on maintaining the well-being, independence and dignity of elders and dependent adults, while balancing the special needs and problems of families and responsible parties caring for them. All CM's have advanced training, education and experience in gerontology, social work, nursing, and/or counseling.

A Care Manager is a health and human services expert, like social workers, counselors, gerontologists or nurses, with a specialized body of knowledge and experience related to aging and care issues. Care Managers assist older adults and persons with disabilities in addressing issues related to their health, psychological, functional and legal/financial status. Care Managers coordinate ongoing care and serves as an experienced guide and resources for the individuals and their families or responsible parties. Care Managers respect the autonomy of the individual, serve with sensitivity and support the dignity of each individual. The care management staff of Senior Matters maintains CEU credits that provide them with current trends in aging and disability services.
