If you have an older family member who attends frequent medical appointments it might be a good idea to accompany them to the appointment.  Being organized and planning for appointments delivers the best results.  Take a list of current medications.  Write down any health questions or concerns.  And most importantly, take notes when you visit the physician.  Many individuals walk in and out of an appointment with questions unanswered or forget advice given.  Often a team approach results in the best outcome.
