Geriatric Care Managers

Advancement Prospects

Advancement options depend to a large extent on each geriatric care manager's goals. For example, those who work as assistants to other care managers or those who are part of a business with several care managers may want to advance by starting their own management service. Those with their own care management services may advance by establishing an excellent reputation and increasing their clientele. A sizeable client base, in turn, will boost the business's earnings; additionally, the care managers may then raise their fees for their in-demand services. On the other hand, some geriatric care managers who have their own businesses may consider it an advancement to form a partnership with other care managers. One benefit of this would be that each manager could concentrate on the areas of care management he or she enjoys the most. Another possibility is for a geriatric care manager in solo private practice to move to a different work setting; for example, a manager may leave solo practice to work for an organization, such as a faith-based group, that provides geriatric care management. And, naturally, this situation could be reversed: A manager could move from a job with an organization to a job in private practice.
