Geriatric Assessment Tools
Geriatric Assessment Tools are a standardized means of obtaining information as part of a comprehensive assessment visit. Assessment tools enable the practitioner to efficiently evaluate a person's current level of function, cognition, and safety. Examples of tools are organized into the following categories. Click on the appropriate category for a menu of tools.
The assessment tools can be viewed and printed. Viewing and printing require Acrobat Reader, a free download from Adobe Systems. Click on the logo if you do not already have Acrobat Reader.
