Congratulations to our Aging Life Care Managers who recently passed their Care Manager Certification (CMC) exam. Jill Bansberg, MSW, Denise Callas, RN, and Janai Quintana, MSW just received their CMC designation from the National Academy of Certified Care Managers which is also recognized by the Aging Life Care Association®.
Care managers applying for the Care Manager Certification from the National Academy of Certified Care Managers (NACCM) must meet specific criteria. Applicants with a master’s in a field related to care management must obtain at least one year of supervised case management experience and pass a certification exam. Applicants with a bachelor’s in a field related to care management must have two years of supervised experience in order to sit for the exam. The exam covers key topics related to care management including: clinical approaches and theories; dementia care; benefits and entitlements; legal issues affecting older adults; and professional ethics. Certification is a sign to consumers that their Aging Life Care Manager® is experienced and committed to professionalism in the field.
Windward Life Care’s clinical team of Aging Life Care Managers have the CMC or are working towards it. As part of their continuing education and clinical support, they meet weekly with our Director of Clinical Services, who has worked in the field of aging for 35 years. Windward also provides monthly educational meetings covering a wide range of topics from dementia care to working with the LGBTQ community.
