Eleven Reasons to Hire a Professional Geriatric Care Manager
- We are professionals who have the knowledge, training, and experience to do what you are trying to do without it.
- We can do in 2 hours what it would take you 2 weeks to do.
- We know how to get around that “I’m saving for a rainy day” syndrome, when your folks are drowning in their problems.
- We’re much cheaper than the cost of plane fare if you have to fly into town when your parents say “everything is fine” but you know it isn’t.
- We can provide advise on which nursing/retirement residence is right for your parents.
- We can make your parents hear what you have said over and over again, but they refuse to listen because to them, you are still a child.
- We can tell your annoying sibling to keep quiet, but graciously.
- We’ve helped families a lot worse than yours.
- Your dad can’t push our buttons.
- Next time you want to hang up on your mother, you can tell her to call us.
- We’re available, so you don’t have to be.
