Linda Fodrini-Johnson, president of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM), recently spoke about opportunities in geriatric care management at theNational Private Duty Association’s (NPDA) 8th Annual Leadership Conference in Philadelphia. Geriatric care management is a field that private duty homecare providers (which include home health aides, companion care and case management) are finding to be an increasingly viable career option.

Fodrini-Johnson said private duty homecare agencies could benefit from having a professional geriatric care manager on staff. (More about integrating geriatric care management into the private duty homecare agency.)
