Marshfield based CARE, LLC, Geriatric Care Management Providers Celebrate One-Year Anniversary and Growing Professional Staff
[ClickPress, Wed Jan 11 2006] Consultation, Advocacy and Resources for Elders (CARE), providers of geriatric care management to elders and their families throughout the South Shore and upper Cape Cod, is celebrating their first anniversary.
CARE, LLC is a partnership between Kate Granigan, MSW, LICSW who is the agency’s Director and a Managing Partner; and MBC Senior Services, Inc led by Lou Schippers, PhD, Chief Financial Officer; Nate Murray, MSSW, LICSW Chief Executive Officer and Donna McQuinn, PsyD. Dedicated to helping elders living in their own homes or in assisted living facilities, the managing partners joined together in 2004 to fulfill a community need for geriatric care managers who are licensed professional human service providers.
“We help elders and their families by providing professional assessments and locating sand managing resources for them. Elders often have complex practical needs and may require access to a bewildering array of public and private resources. Our job is to develop a plan and address their needs. It’s very difficult for family members who live far from an elderly family member, to gauge what kind of care is needed and where it can be found. CARE helps by serving as a liaison,” explained Ms. Granigan.
She continued, “We want our geriatric clients to attain their maximum functional potential, so we strive to deliver care coordination and support services that will not only meet an elder’s needs, but do so in such a way that preserves dignity. Over the past year, we have become the most requested Care Management provider on the South Shore.”
All of CARE’s staff are master’s degree level Board Certified Clinical Social Workers and Nurses and are experienced specialists in providing care to elders. The agency establishes a new professional level of services designed to screen, arrange and monitor in-home help or other services for elders. CARE can also provide crisis intervention, and can act as a liaison for families who live far away.
The agency has experience significant growth over the past year and is currently expanding their staff with the addition of two more Master’s degree level Care Managers and a Clinician.
