A geriatric care manager can help your elderly family member in New York CityGeriatric care managers are educated in multiple different fields such as nursing, gerontology, social work, and or psychology. At Alvita Care, our care managers are trained to assist in providing services for your family and your loved ones.

Knowing what resources are available in your neighborhood is important, and geriatric care managers can assist with where to access these resources. At Alvita Home Care we can answer many questions such as how to set up home care services, the price of these services, how does Medicare or Medicaid play a role, and what insurance pays for.
