Treat Me, Not My Age: A Doctor’s Guide to Getting the Best Care as You or a Loved One Gets Older

A doctor gives sage advice on how to maneuver through a hospital and health care system that is not very geriatric friendly. Some tips: Assume that medical records will get lost somewhere between your doctor’s office, a specialist’s office and the hospital, and carry with you your own copies. Plan hospital visits around mealtime to be sure that your parent can eat. Bring eyeglasses, hearing aids with spare batteries, and dentures.

“Treat Me, Not My Age: A Doctor’s Guide to Getting the Best Care as You or a Loved One Gets Older,” by Dr. Mark Lachs.
