Finding Interventions for the Care Plan
Your care plan interventions are found in the continuum of care in your community. But, how do you find this continuum? As a GCM, you should already have significant experience in this continuum before you open your GCM door for business. This is what is meant by your core competence to open a geriatric care management business. You need to know your community’s continuum of care from day one.
You can access most areas of the continuum of care on the Internet. You can access your counties or Area Agency on Aging Web site, which should include Senior Information and Referral .
Their website should list all the current senior services (nursing home, Assisted Living, senior transportation, friendly visitors, private duty home care, Medicare based Home care, support groups etc.) available in your area. If they have no web site go to their office and get a booklet that may sell with all the services in the continuum of care in your area.
