The best way to determine whether or not your family can benefit from geriatric care management is to schedule a consultation with one of our experts.  Consultations are often the first step in helping families find solutions to the problems that often accompany the aging process.  During a consultation, a geriatric care manager will meet with the individuals and/or family members to evaluate the physical, mental, social and functional strengths of an older person and develop a plan of action.  Click here to learn about our geriatric care management team.  Call 773.508.1000 to schedule a consultation.
