Geriatric Evaluation is a health care visit with a team of experts that results in a treatment plan aimed at helping Veterans:
- Maintain good health
- Improve quality of life
- Reduce the need for hospital stays
- Reduce the need for long term care services
- Remain independent using VA and community resources
Geriatric Evaluation is an option for all enrolled Veterans who need it, as often as it is needed. There are special teams at VA for older Veterans. This visit is often called a consult.
