What reporters should know about geriatric care managers


Melissa Patrick

Geriatric care managers have been around for decades and their numbers continue to grow, but many people have never heard of them.

The Aging Life Care Association (ACLA), the trade association for the industry, says geriatric care managers provide a “holistic, client-centered approach to caring for older adults or others facing ongoing health challenges.” 

The number of Americans ages 65 and older is projected to more than double from 46 million today to over 98 million by 2060, according to the Population Reference Bureau. That adds up to a growing population of seniors primed to need more health care services – including geriatric care managers –  in the coming years.
