Local Professional Elected to Help Shape Senior Policy
Date:12/30/2009

ng seniors. Prior to founding Eldercare Services, Fodrini-Johnson helped lay the platform for Contra Costa County’s senior based programs.

Fodrini-Johnson advocates for elders with the goal of providing the best quality of life possible for each person and their situation. Care Management goes a long way in making this attainable. Recently, Care Management was an almost unheard of term that is now quickly spreading as the potential results are discovered by the greater population. Linda explains, “A Care Manager is an individual, typically with a professional background in Nursing, Social Work, Counseling or Physical Therapy, who can monitor all aspects of a clients life to ensure that the individual has all needs and wishes met to the extent of the Care Manager’s ability ultimately providing the best quality of life possible to the client.” Frequently a Care Manager will interface with medical professionals, create care plans, respond in emergencies and oversee Caregivers or Personal Assistants lending an additional line of support and expertise. Due to the relative newness of the profession, Linda has been a part of defining the role of and requirements for Care Managers.

The NAPGCM has recently called all members performing in the Care Management capacity to become certified, requiring experience and demonstrated ability through testing in order to help solidify standards for the emerging field as the need grows. Linda Fodrini-Johnson looks forward to the opportunity to shape the future of geriatric care and advocate for the senior population through her roles both at the NAPGCM and Eldercare Services.
