Preparing Your Senior Loved One for a Doctor’s Visit


When you are the primary caregiver for an aging loved one, one of the most important things you can do is to make sure they are prepared for doctor’s appointments. This way, they will be able to give their doctor all of the information they need to assess and treat any health problems. As a provider of home healthcare services in Connecticut, we enumerated these tips to help you prepare for your senior’s doctor’s visit:

  • Make a List
    To make sure your doctor has the most accurate information about your senior loved one, it’s important to make a list of their medications, vitamins, supplements, and medical conditions.
  • Request Copies
    Ask for copies of their medical records, including doctor’s notes, lab reports, X-rays, etc., before going into the appointment so that you’re fully prepared when talking with the doctor or nurse practitioner during the visit.
  • Arrange for Transportation
    An easy way to ensure that your loved one will be able to get around is by driving them yourself. If this isn’t possible for you, consider a family member or close friend who lives nearby and can pick up and drop off your senior loved one at their scheduled appointment.
  • Bring a Companion
    Bring a family member during the visit. However, if nobody is available, look for a trained caregiver from a non-medical home healthcare agency. Not only will they help you remember what was discussed, but they will also serve as your support.

With the right preparation, getting your senior loved one to their next doctor’s appointment can be easy. Total Assurance Home Healthcare is here to help you give your loved one the best care possible.
