In-home Comprehensive Geriatric Evaluation

There are many issues we all may face as we age, such as memory problems, health issues, safety in the home, estate planning and long-term care, to name a few. Senior Evaluations provides you and your loved ones with a broad and comprehensive in-home assessment that looks into every aspect of an aging person’s day-to-day life. Then, you are presented with clear, practical and unbiased recommendations for optimal wellness and independence.

Senior Evaluations brings over 35 years of training and experience in medical care for seniors. Our evaluation and detailed recommendations are designed to complement and enhance the care you receive from your primary care provider.

Consultation requests to Senior Evaluations may be initiated directly from seniors themselves, family, caregivers or by the senior’s primary care provider.
