At Park Nicollet, we understand the issues facing elderly adults and their families. Our team of compassionate geriatricians, nurse practitioners and social workers provide comprehensive primary care and geriatric assessments to patients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, as well as in-office care.
Geriatric assessments are comprehensive appointments with a social worker and a doctor specializing in geriatric medicine. Before the appointment, a social worker meets with you or your loved one at home or in the clinic to assess areas in which additional support may be needed. We recommend geriatric assessments if you notice memory loss or confusion, changes in personality or mood, falls and balance problems, incontinence issues or difficulty with daily living activities. Referrals are not required for geriatric assessments.
