Geriatric Care Management

JSL Companion Services provides geriatric care management services. Our Geriatric Care Managers are nurses certified in gerontology who act as guide, advocate and resource for families caring for older relatives. The geriatric care managers conduct an in-depth assessment that considers physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and safety needs; personal preferences; and financial resources to develop a plan of care. The plan of care focuses on the family’s and client’s personal goals so that we are a united front in the care of your loved one.

The care plan is dynamic and will change with illnesses, changes in cognitive abilities or due to many other factors. We will monitor the plan and suggest adjustments as needs change to ensure that your loved one remains safe, happy and well cared for.

With changes in healthcare, planning care is a confusing ordeal. We will help you navigate the system by interacting with healthcare and other service providers to make sure our clients receive quality care and are protected from those individuals that may take advantage of our elders.

Oftentimes families of our clients live out of town. We provide peace of mind that your loved one is getting the attention he or she needs and help to prevent a crisis before it occurs. However, if a crisis does occur, we will be there for guidance, management and support. Our Geriatric Care Managers may attend medical appointments with our clients and provide feedback to the appropriate family members. If hospitalized, we will work with hospital staff and attend discharge conferences to help develop a discharge plan focused on your loved one’s goals.

  • Advocacy with Health & Service Providers
