A little about Marianne....

Marianne started working as a case manager at a non-profit agency, fifteen years ago, with older adults and their families.  It was then, that she discovered her true calling.

Marianne is a certified Geriatric Care Manager.  She has a Master of Science degree in Gerontology and is a member of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers.  In 2009, Marianne was one of three people selected to receive the Rose Kryzak Award, a prestigious acknowledgement, for oustanding services on behalf of the seniors of New York.  In 2010, she was elected entry into Sigma Phi Omega, the National Honor and Professional Society of Gerontology.

"Before working with Marianne, I felt lost and overwhelmed with the entire home care process.  After working with her, I felt more at ease and confident as she helped guide us through the cumbersome process.  She was also a great resource for accurate information as we were frequently misinformed along the way."-    J. Costable, M.D.

Founded in 2013, Marianne Altman, Geriatric Care Management Services  started with the idea of providing a comprehensive, warm and intelligent approach to serving older adults and their families . Having more than 15 years of experience in the field of aging services, Marianne noticed a need, in her community, for caregivers to receive support as they were overwhelmed by the myriad of issues facing their older loved one.

She understands that people have different needs and each family situation is unique. That is why a comprehensive assessment is performed, followed by a care plan that is individually designed to meet each person's needs and goals. This allows her to provide the best solutions.

 "Marianne has such a calm and reassuring  manner.  I always know, after talking to her,  that I'm going to feel better." - H. G.
