Summary "Care Managers: Working with the Aging Family addresses the unmet needs of care managers working with aging clients and their families. With its in-depth discussion of the "aging family system," this book fills a gap for medical case managers and geriatric care managers focusing on the treatment goals of aging clients as they move through the continuum of care in institutional or community-based settings." "Care Managers: Working with the Aging Family will allow care managers to assist the entire family unit through the aging process - including death and dying - helping midlife children to work together to care for aging parents. It adds proven techniques to the care manager repertoire such as family meetings, forgiveness, technology, and caregiver assessment. It offers ideas tor creating effective care plans so that the needs of both the family and the older client are met."--BOOK JACKET.
