Geriatric care managers are wonder woman for long-distance care providers
More than a million people have died of COVID in the past 7 days , according to the CDC.
This is an important message for care managers to use before the upcoming holidays. Getting on a plane to travel is dangerous for the long-distance care provider in the
highest national spread of COVID. Plus they might carry the deadly infection to their aging parents, the most vulnerable group to die of COVID. This gives these distant caring family members every reason not to see their parents- but what will they then do to keep them safe- Hire a Geriatric Care Manager.

If You live Long Distance from an aging parent during the COVID spread, it’s a preventative and prudent idea to have a geriatric care manager in the town where your older relative resides. If your parents are sheltering in place, they can make sure they are safe and use tools to prevent the loneliness and isolation that can set in over the holidays. If there is a crisis, like a COVID diagnosis,
they are right there to professionally manage it. In an urgent situation, a care manager can go to the hospital or emergency room. This is saner, safer, and more cost-effective than you getting on last-minute, expensive flights without any social distancing protection for you or your aging parents when you see them. Geriatric Care Managers are good insurance.”
Use Telehealth to Market to 3rd Parties Over the Holiday
You can make marketing visits to 3rd parties through HIPAA-compliant video
conferencing services like elder law attornies or wealth managers. You can pitch “Before any crisis, the GCM do an initial assessment and visit your long-distance older client on a regular basis. This is preventative. That way a professional is there for your client 1-1, when you need them and has a health care background to solve the problem.”
Here is a better line for long-distance adult children:
“Think of care managers the way you do one of those blow-up beds. You can pump them
up when you need them in a crisis—perhaps avoid that crisis, and you yourself can sleep more soundly and with more peace of mind in your own bed.
Some of the things a geriatric care manager can do for long-distance care providers are:
1. Save your worry, fear of COVID, and money by helping keep your parent safe from COVID and out of the hospital and you off dangerous emergency long-distance flights.
2.Help your parents avoid loneliness and isolation by arranging virtual quality of life activities to keep them socially engaged while sheltering in place.
4.Facilitate a family discussion of needs, resources, and division of labor among friends family
5. Recommend ways to proactively prepare and plan for a parent’s possible health care crisis like COVID.
6. Work on family cooperation to formulate a realistic parent-care plan.
7.Assess the strengths and weaknesses of all of the potential caregivers if needed
7. Help adult siblings resolve conflicts, if any, about care decisions.
8. Help the long-distance care provider deal with guilt and frustration that may result from their inability to provide more of the day-to-day care.
9. Locate aging resources in your elder parents’ area quickly and without you having to do it.
