We are pleased to announce that Susy Elder Murphy, BA, CMC, has been elected President of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Aging Life Care™ Association, or ALCA (formerly the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers, NAPGCM).
NAPGCM underwent a major rebranding which started in 2014 and the new name was introduced in April 2015 at the association's national conference. There was a strong need to brand the profession and increase care managers' visibility in the changing world of aging. The terminology for our profession has now changed for the most part from "Geriatric Care Managers" to "Aging Life Care Managers or Professionals" for those who are members of the association.
Susy is very excited to serve as President of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of ALCA and promote the important work of the 250 regional members. She is eager to use her extensive knowledge and resources to help grow the Mid-Atlantic Chapter and educate our referral sources and client and families about the unique value of Aging Life Care Managers. She plans to create a strong and unified voice with the help of her team of 11 social workers, nurses, and gerontologists who are all ALCA members. Susy and her team are committed to offering seniors and their families the best in caring, individualized and effective support as they face the challenges of aging.
