Why do I need a "Certified" Geriatric Care Manager?

When seeking a Geriatric Care Manager you will want to do your due diligence and verify that they are indeed certified by an accredited agency. Unfortunately, the term “Care Manager” is loosely used by unqualified individuals. It is important to not only interview a potential Geriatric Care Manager but to check their references. A reputable Geriatric Care Manager will gladly share this information with you. 

We are proud to say that our team has the only certified Geriatric Care Manager in the Brazos Valley. You can feel confident in your choice when you select a Care Manager that holds the CMC credential.

Our Care Management division is a fee-based service and assists with identifying and addressing both immediate and long-term barriers that create challenges for seniors and their family members. 

How much will this cost?

Our care management services are billed at an hourly rate between $25 and $95 per hour, depending on the scope of care.  There is never a fee for a consultation appointment and our team can accommodate house calls.  Evening and weekend appointments may be available as well.

We have created special "COVID Care" Program that provides special rates for services during these difficult times.  This program is an excellent value and will benefit families that are not able to see their aging loved one on a regular basis.  In order for us to serve our clients well, program availability is limited.
