How Do I Choose a Geriatric Care Agency?
Look for an agency that provides the services you or your loved one requires. While visiting websites or exploring agencies online, be sure to spend time in their 'Services' section or call to speak with one of the company's geriatric care managers in Fallbrook. Innovative Healthcare offers a broad range of non-medical services, including the following:
- Facility-to-home transitioning
- Disease management
- Disability homecare
- Financial/legal services

What Does a Geriatric Manager Do?
Geriatric Managers are coordinators and planners for the care of the elderly to assist in maintaining independence and improving quality of life. Geriatric care may include any one or more of the following: gerontology, nursing, psychology, or social work, with particular attention directed toward aging patients. Before you hire a Geriatric manager to care for a loved one, find out more about their specific field of study and interest to make sure they're the right choice for your family's needs.
What Age is a Geriatric Patient?
Geriatric Care Managers in Fallbrook care specifically for patients age 65 and older. The age restrictions falling under the term 'geriatric' are more relaxed in recent years and could include any senior or older patient, regardless of their age, who requires care in their home. If you'd like to speak with one of our specialists about non-medical home care, feel free to contact our team from Innovative Healthcare. We bring more than 20 years of experience in elder care, family support, and long-term care arrangement.
Can Geriatric Care Help Me Age in My Home?
The primary benefit of Geriatric Care Management is to improve the safety of your home and provide assistance to patients that make it possible to stay at home instead of entering a nursing home facility or an assisted living facility. Innovative Healthcare provides varying levels of at-home care, including live-in care to ensure you or someone you care about is safe at home. Our Geriatric Care Managers in Fallbrook can coordinate our care to match your needs, whether you just need a few hours of care each day or someone there for you every minute of the day and night.
How Can We Assess the Level of Care We Need?
Family members can provide excellent care for a loved one for a short amount of time. Sooner or later, geriatric patients require professional care that allows family members to continue living their lives and taking respite during the course of care. We invite you to work with our Geriatric Care managers in Fallbrook to evaluate the level of care you need in your home. We are pleased to offer patients and their families all of the following services:
- Personal care and assistance in dressing, taking meds, and bathing
