Geriatric Care Managers Emerging as Important Contributors to Eldercare
June 6, 2006 — Geriatric care managers, unknown 20 years ago, are emerging into an important piece of the network for the care of the elderly. The New York Times explored the industry in an article on Saturday and found they “are growing increasingly popular as people live longer and want to grow old in their homes.” The number of certified geriatric managers totals about 2,041 today, compared with about 50 in 1986, when the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers was formed, according to the newspaper.
The New York chapter opened its annual meeting today. For more information follow this link – http://www.nygcm.org/meetingspro.htm
