Navigating the aging journey for yourself or a loved one can be overwhelming. It’s difficult to know where to begin and the fear that you are missing something very important always lingers. You are not alone. In episode 6 we discussed Home Care options (if you missed that you can find episode 6 at along with our whole catalog of shows). The option we will discuss in this episode Is a Life Care Manager, also known as a Geriatric Care Manager. Guest Barbara Herrington of All About Aging provides a wealth of information and sheds some light on this topic.
