Why Do Seniors Need a Geriatric Assessment?
 
Many conditions that commonly affect the older adult can be managed with lifestyle changes, diet modification, exercise and medication management. The program is beneficial to older adults with multiple health conditions or those who have had recent changes in their health such as falls, hospitalizations, fatigue and memory issues.

Why Choose the Geriatric Assessment Program (GAP)?

The program provides a “no wrong door” approach to senior healthcare. Clients are assessed by a team of the finest Geriatricians Social Workers, Nurses, and Occupational Therapists in Southern Nevada.

Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment encompasses all of the clients’ diseases, disabilities, cognitive abilities, medications, self-care behaviors, health-related lifestyle habits, psychological conditions, environmental risks, and family and/or friend support systems.

 

Will I Have to Change My Primary Care Physician?

No, the GAP program will send all reports to your primary care doctors, as directed by the patient. The complete GAP assessment is approximately 2 hours. Appointments allow patients and/or family/caregivers, 45 minutes to discuss their health issues with the geriatric physician. This allows adequate time to answer questions and review the patient’s and caregiver’s needs. GAP is an evaluation program. GAP physicians make recommendations; they do not order tests or write prescriptions.

 

How Does GAP Help Caregivers? 

At the GAP Program, we look at the “whole picture”. This includes offering support, information and services to benefit both the patient and the caregiver.


*This program is made possible by a grant from the State of Nevada Aging and Disabilities Services Division (ADSD). When possible, physician’s fees are billed to Medicare, Medicaid or insurance. Any other fees are covered by the ADSD grant. There is no cost to the patient.
