A GCM is a health and human services specialist who acts as a guide and advocate for families who are caring for a frail elder or a disabled adult. A GCM assists clients in attaining their maximum functional potential. Geriatric Care Managers are able to address a broad range of issues related to the well-being of the client. They also have extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in the communities.
