The National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM) defines and promotes the highest standards for private practice. Membership is open to qualified individuals either with a degree in a field in human services (social work, psychology, nursing, gerontology) or an equivalent background, who are also experienced in the delivery of services to the elderly and their families. Members of GCMNE (New England) must meet or exceed the standards of NAPGCM.
As of 2008, the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers voted to further elevate the professional standards of GCMs in the organization by requiring all NAPGCM members to be certified. For more information on how you, can obtain such certification, please visit the websites of the official certification organizations below, or visit NAPGCM at caremanager.org.

We welcome you to attend any of our upcoming GCMNE program meetings as a guest. The list of upcoming programs is located to the right. We usually meet at an assisted living or long term care facility in the Eastern Massachusetts/Metro-West area. Our meetings begin with a tour of the hosting facility and a snack provided by them, followed by a guest speaker on a topic of professional interest to our membership. Guests are allowed to attend one (1) program meeting then they must join to continue to attend and reap the full benefits of membership.
