Careplan Geriatric Care Managers was founded by Bridget Ritossa, Certified Geriatric Care Manager, Licensed Social Worker. Bridget developed a wealth of knowledge and resources in the areas of aging during her 20 years of practice working at two major hospital systems in Cleveland, as well as two of the largest nursing home chains in the country.
Having her grandmother in her home while growing up helped develop a genuine love and appreciation for the elderly.
Studies have shown that living at home is better for the mental health of seniors, who are happier in a familiar environment where they can live independently. When home is no longer the best option Bridget will help families to find the most appropriate placement. Her experience in long-term care is extensive.
Bridget’s goal was to create a company that would provide older adults with the resources and knowledge to successfully age at home. Creating an individualized care plan is at the very heart of Careplan Geriatric Care Managers.
