Meet the team

Atlas Aging Life Care Managers are the central hub of the elder care team

The elder care team consists of all professionals involved in the care of a client. Members of this team can include the doctors, nurses, social workers, aides and companions, hospice staff, attorneys, accountants, and of course, Aging Life Care/Geriatric Care Managers.

Atlas Aging Life Care Managers assess the individual from a holistic point of view. We evaluate all aspects of a person’s life, in order to assist them to achieve their highest quality of life and ability to function.

As Aging Life/Geriatric Care Managers, we become the central hub of the elder care team, maintaining communication between all of the members, and keeping the family informed as well, frequently offering options for care that the client and their families can choose from. We are the link that unites all of the pieces of the fragmented and often very complicated healthcare system that exists today.
