A Few Words in Support of Alexandra M. ...
There are not enough stars to rate this care provider appropriately!!!
We are so grateful for the professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate work performed by GCM Alexandra M. on behalf of my brother, a man who suffers from dementia.
Alexandra worked with my brother for two years. During that time, my family and I lived on the East Coast, so it was tremendously reassuring to know we could rely on someone with Alexandra's vast expertise and skills. She monitored him regularly and effectively. They developed an excellent rapport despite his deficits. She established an excellent line of communication with us, his assisted living community, and his physicians.
People who work with Alexandra benefit from her education, which includes undergraduate and graduate work in gerontology. She also has a great deal of training from the Alzheimer Association with which she continues to be associated. Alexandra always is aware of the latest dementia research, treatment, and care options, and she generously shares this information with her clients and their families. Supplementing her education and training is her extensive dementia care work experience.
News about dementia's progression in a loved one is never welcome. However, Alexandra shares her observations and assessments with the utmost kindness, sensitivity and patience.
An opportunity arose for my brother to relocate to be near us. Alexandra worked effectively and in a timely manner with attorneys, physicians, and his residential care staff to make this happen. She also escorted my brother cross-country via airplane for his relocation. Once here, she worked to ensure his smooth transition into his new community. When she returned to California, she oversaw the cleaning out of his former assisted living apartment.
Having Alexandra on my brother's care team relieved a lot of the stress we -- including my brother -- had been experiencing on behalf of his needs. We highly recommend her geriatric care management services! We miss her tremendously and recommend her wholeheartedly.

When my mom got diagnosed with Alzheimer's I didn't know what to do. I am the only relative living near her and was overwhelmed trying to get her all the care she needed. My employer suggested I get a Geriatric Care Manager. Finding Alex was a life saver! She has helped me immensely - in large and small ways. She provides calm and practical advise and is incredibly knowledgeable. I greatly appreciate her care and support, My mom also loves spending time with her. Alex has been instrumental in helping my mom come to terms with the diagnosis and finding healthily ways to cope and make the best of each day. Alex has been a wonderful resource and I would highly recommend her services.
Our family has worked with Alex for the past 2 years and she has provided my siblings and myself continued compassion, support and education regarding the debilitating, progressive disease of Alzheimer's. Our mother is in a dementia care facility and Alex visits her regularly and meets with our family regularly. She attends the Family Care Conferences and advocates for our mother to provide the very best care. She is a support person that we can count on whenever we are feeling confused or afraid or sad. I would strongly recommend Alex to work with your family in navigating the needs of those impacted by dementia.
Alex is a care manager for my husband, who resides in a dementia facility. She visits him. keeps in close contact with the administrator, nurses and caregivers to make sure all is going well. Whenever there is a problem she immediately offers possible solutions after conferring with the appropriate people. She is quick to respond to phone calls or emails. I am impressed with her knowledge and her caring manner in dealing with both my husband and with me. She has my highest recommendation.
