You need an academic background in geriatric care management to start a GCM business.Many universities and colleges now have classes, degrees and certificates in geriatric care management to teach the basics of geriatric care management. Some programs offer on line classes.Miseracordia , The University of Florida, U of Missouri are all on- line programs . The oldest and largest school of gerontology in the world and the first major research institution in the nation devoted entirely to the study of aging, the USC Davis School of Gerontology will be launching a geriatric care management program next year. You should also consider just taking a small business class through a local college near you.
