Geriatric Risk Assessment

As we age, we'd like to remain in good health, stay independent and live a fulfilling life. However, with age often comes the potential for complex medical issues. Whether you are a senior or a caregiver,  there comes a time when you may need to seek the help of a doctor who specializes in the treatment of older adults. Answer the questions below regarding yourself or a loved one to help you find out. Upon completion, share the test results with your doctor.

Geriatric Risk Assessment

Does he/she have trouble walking or have falls?
Was he/she hospitalized within the past three months?
Does he/she take more than five medications daily?
Does he/she rate his/her health as worse than others?
Does his/her primary care physician recommend he/she be seen by a geriatrician due to the complexities of caring for an older adult?
