Compass ShiningCare is a member of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM). This is an organization of practitioners whose goal is the advancement of expert assistance to the elderly and their families. NAPGCM is committed to maximizing the independence and autonomy of elders and strives to ensure the highest quality and most cost-effective health and human services. Through education, advocacy, counseling, and service delivery, NAPGCM members assist older persons and their families to cope with the challenges of aging.
We primarily work with older adults and can bring more to our practice than most home care agencies. We will bring knowledge of aging issues that allow us and our staff to overcome the myths relating to aging, and to focus on the problems at hand. At the same time, we will bring an experience of working with resources in your community. We are keenly aware of real life problems, health and otherwise, that emerge as persons age as well as the tools that are available to address those issues. We are also connected within our community of social workers, nurses, psychologists, elder law attorneys, advocates, and other elder care professionals who may be of assistance to you.
We are also Care Manager Certified (CMC), from the National Academy of Certified Care Managers (NACCM)
Membership in NAPGCM as a Certified Geriatric Care Manager is open only to qualified individuals with specialized degrees and experience in human services, including social work, psychology, gerontology or nursing, and who hold one of four NAPGCM-approved certifications.
NAPGCM promotes the highest standards of practice. Geriatric Care Managers who are members of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM) are committed to adhering to the NAPGCM Pledge of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
