How to help the doctor better help your aging parent.
If you’re taking your aging parents to doctor visits or even doing tele-health appointments with them, you want to make the most of the time you have and get issues properly addressed. There may even be concerns you want to bring up that are hard to do in front of your parent. So what do we do?
Kim & Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents wanted to get the perspective of a doctor to find out what we can do to help the doctor provide the best care possible. Dr. David Murdy is a Geriatrician at Baylor Scott & White Health and specializes in taking care of older adults.
He talks to Kim & Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents about what you can do ahead of time to prepare for a doctor visit, how to advocate for your parents and what questions to ask for the most effective visits.
