In May 2015 the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers (NAPGCM) changed its name to Aging Life Care Association® (ALCA). The profession of “Geriatric Care Management,” as defined by this organization, was changed to the Aging Life Care™ profession and its practitioners “Aging Life Care Professionals®. The use of the phrases “Aging Life Care” and “geriatric care management” on these pages share the same meaning.
