Such concerns may include memory loss or other change in mental ability, falls, polypharmacy (taking many medications with possible interactions), frailty, and/or having multiple health issues. Family and/or caregivers are necessary for a complete appointment and assessment. Additional testing may be ordered, including blood work and/or neuropsychological testing.
