Primary Rule: If your parent cannot manage and supervise the caregiver, the caregiver is in control of your parent's life and home. 


Home Health Aide

  • Employed by home health provider, hospital, congregate community, insurance company, etc. 
  • Client's primary advocate and resource is high school graduate or GED
  • Limited training/education mandates narrow approach to client's needs
  • Education may vary, usually high school diploma or equivalent 


Geriatric Care Manager

  • Objective professional advocate without financial or other obligation to anyone except client. 
  • Client's primary advocate and resource is professional nurse
  • Total lifestyle approach with equal consideration for quality of life and healthcare needs. 
  • No variation. Preferred Lifestyle Services Care Managers are experienced geriatric professional nurses who have surpassed the State of Florida's highest requirements for dementia training and education.
