What should I expect in geriatric care?
Geriatric care plans commence with an initial patient assessment that takes between 2-5 hours. The assessment includes visits with family and draws on data such as medical history, social history and finance history. Assessments are made for falling risk, home safety, nutrition, depression, pain, mental health, balance and gate. Other physical assessment may be made based on patient conditions and history.
