Geriatric Care Managers
You should take a college preparatory curriculum, and, because
many skills are necessary to be an effective geriatric care
manager, there are plenty of classes you can take to help prepare
you for this work. Classes in health are an obvious choice;
geriatric care managers need to have an understanding of the human
body and how its functions are affected by the aging process.
Psychology courses are helpful, since you will need to understand
and deal with a variety of people in a myriad of circumstances.
Courses in sociology can introduce you to yet another aspect of the
geriatric and health care realm. Sciences, such as biology and
chemistry, are also useful. Don't neglect your math studies, since
you may need to deal with clients' financial questions as well as
keep your own records regarding billing and expenses. You will also
benefit from English or communication courses, as it will be
imperative that you can convey information effectively to your
clients and their families.
