This chapter discusses credentialing for social workers with older adults, with an emphasis on care management, as it is the only possible current credentialing opportunity addressing social work with older adults and their families. Following an overview of credentialing is a discussion of the case management knowledge and skills needed to provide services for a growing number of older persons and their families. Social work with older adults, especially with those who are frail and at risk, has become more complex in recent years because of fragmented health and social welfare policies, programs, and services, problematic legal and financial structures, and shrinking public resources. Given this, effective case management skills are critical.
