Seniors and their loved ones can plan ahead for a more productive, worry-free experience.
With limited time to meet with a physician, it’s important for you or your senior family member to have the most productive doctor visit possible. By planning ahead, you can save time and remove some of the stress associated with visiting a health care professional. Here are a few tips that will help you be an ally and an advocate:
Visit the doctor’s website. Often, new patient forms are available online, so you can print them and complete the paperwork ahead of time.
Go together. It’s good to take a companion to help communicate and be an extra set of eyes and ears.
