Discovering the Unseen Aspects of Geriatric Care with Boutique Care Management

As our loved ones age, ensuring they receive the best possible care becomes a top priority. Geriatric care, a specialized field focusing on the unique needs of older adults, plays an important role in this journey. At Cheer Home Care, we are committed to providing exceptional care and support to seniors in our community. Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting a “Coffee and Learn” event featuring Boutique Care Management, a company dedicated to high-level geriatric care management. 

Who is Boutique Care Management and What is Geriatric Care?

Boutique Care Management specializes in geriatric care, offering personalized plans tailored to the unique needs of each senior. Geriatric care management involves comprehensive assessments, care planning, and coordination of services to ensure the well-being of older adults. It addresses various aspects of a senior’s life, including medical, social, and emotional needs.  We often like to think of them as the sibling you wish we had in the industry that knows all the answers to your questions.

Services Offered by Boutique Care Management

Boutique Care Management provides a range of services to support seniors and their families:

  • Comprehensive Assessments: Detailed evaluations of a senior’s health, environment, and needs.
  • Personalized Care Plans: Customized strategies to address medical, social, and emotional requirements.
  • Coordination of Services: Connecting seniors with appropriate healthcare providers, social services, and community resources.
  • Ongoing Monitoring: Regular check-ins to ensure the care plan remains effective and adjust as needed.  What is unique about them is that they are also able to personally address many of the medical needs or care as nurses.

Interesting Facts About Geriatric Care

During our event, we uncovered several intriguing facts about geriatric care:

  • Geriatric Care Managers (GCMs): Interestingly, many GCMs employ social workers to address the comprehensive needs of seniors. However, it’s important to note that long-term care insurance often does not cover these expenses.  Since they are nurses it is more likely their services would be covered by your long-term care policy.  Ask them about it.
  • Engaging Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients: Research shows that dementia and Alzheimer’s patients often prefer watching news shows like CNN over movies or complex stories. These types of programs are repetitive and have short stories, making them easier to follow and enjoy, thus enhancing engagement without the need to remember intricate plot lines.

By partnering with organizations like Boutique Care Management, we can bring valuable knowledge and resources to the San Diego community.
