The geriatric assessment is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary assessment designed to evaluate an elderly person's functional ability, physical health, cognitive and mental health and socio-environmental circumstances. It includes an extensive review of prescription and over-the-counter medicine, vitamins, and herbal products, as well as a review of immunisation status.
An initial assessment is done on the first visit to evaluate the care requirements. Baseline information assists to monitor progress or decline.
