Geriatric Assessment Clinic

Our Geriatric Assessment Clinic provides comprehensive health screenings and medical tests for older adults. The assessment is typically covered by Medicare and other major health insurance companies and requires a referral from a primary care physician. The Geriatric Assessment may take several hours to complete, and may take place over the course of two to three visits to us. Below is a detailed list of the types of procedures you will undergo at your assessment:

  • An evaluation conducted by a team that includes a geriatrician, a nurse, counselor and physical therapist focusing on memory loss, incontinence, fall risk, depression and medication issues.
  • As part of the assessment you may be referred to a neuropsychologist to determine strengths and weaknesses in thinking and memory. We may also request other testing such as lab work, MRI or CT scan of the brain.
  • At a follow-up visit there will be list of recommended strategies for families and caregivers individualized to the findings of your assessment.
  • Relevant referrals to community resources for continued support.

Once completed, the results of your assessment will be sent to your primary care physician. You will also be sent a summary of your results.
