What is an Aging Life Care Professional?
An Aging Life Care Professional, also known as a geriatric care manager, is a specialist who acts as a guide and advocate for families who are caring for older relatives. Aging Life Care Professionals have an extensive knowledge about the costs, quality, and availability of resources in their communities.
Aging Life Care Professionals are members of the Aging Life Care Association (ALCA) and differ from patient advocates, senior advisors, senior navigators, and elder advocates. ALCA members must meet stringent education, experience, and certification requirements of the organization, and all members are required to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
