When you are hanging in the balance wondering whether your loved one can safely live alone or practice necessary self-care, a geriatric assessment by a qualified health professional can often clarify the vital issues. A geriatric assessment is a comprehensive evaluation performed by a fellowship trained physician that enables you and your family to understand your loved one's abilities and limitations. Our holistic approach to medical care treats the mind, body and spirit in a caring environment.
A comprehensive geriatric assessment includes:
- A complete medical history and physical exam
- A social and psychological evaluation
- An assessment of cognitive function
- A solution-oriented plan of care
The goal of this extensive evaluation is to develop a custom written plan for your loved one that is both clear and practical.
For more information, please see our Geriatric Assessment Flyer.
