Aging Life Care Experts are professionals who can assess older adults and develop a care plan that will determine the need for in-home care, relocation and additional medical care. Aging Life Care Experts coordinate a variety of care related services and can be the eyes and ears for family members who live far away. They are also there for those family members who live nearby, but are too busy to handle the daily details of the older person’s life. 


Aging Life Care Experts provide the answers and the solutions to busy family members who know help is needed but don’t know what to do. Aging Life Care™, also known as geriatric care management, is a holistic, client-centered approach to caring for older adults or others facing ongoing health challenges. Working with families, the expertise of Aging Life Care Professionals provides the answers at a time of uncertainty.



An Aging Life Care™ Expert is a professional who specializes in assisting older people and their families in assessing, coordinating and planning care. Aging Life Care™ Experts have training in gerontology, social work, nursing, and/or counseling.


Aging Life Care Experts can help:


  • Conduct care-planning assessments to identify problems, eligibility for assistance, and need for services
  • Screen, arrange and monitor in-home help or other services
  • Review financial, legal, or medical issues and offer referrals to geriatric specialists to avoid future problems and conserve assets
  • Provide crisis intervention
  • Act as a liaison to families at a distance, alerting families early to problems to ensure early interventions
  • Assist with moving an older person to or from a retirement complex, care home, or nursing home
  • Provide consumer education and advocacy
  • Offer counseling and support
  • Some Aging Life Care Experts can also provide family or individual therapy, money management, and conservatorship or guardianship assistance.
