Welcome to NYGCM Website!

Has caring for an older Adult family member becoming challenging?

Have you noticed any troubling changes in your loved one? Are they having difficulty maintaining their homes or paying their bills in a timely manner? Do they appear to be losing weight, looking less put together or forgetting to attend appointments? Has caring for them disrupted your caring for your children or your job? If so, you can benefit from the services of a care manager.

Geriatric Care Managers are professionals who can assess older adult and develop a care plan that will examine the need for in-home care, relocation, additional medical care as well as to coordinate all related services. Geriatric Care Managers can be the eyes and ears for family members who live far away or near by, but are too busy to handle the daily details of the older person’s life. They provide the answers and the solutions to the busy family members who know help is needed but don’t know what to do.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for older adults who reside in: the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester, Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, Duchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan and other counties in Upper New York State.
