Do You Need to Bring Anything During a Checkup?

Do You Need to Bring Anything During a Checkup?

Visiting the doctor on a regular basis is a must for most people, especially for those who have ailments or the elderly. So if this describes your loved one, ensure that they are present in their medical appointments. When none of the family can accompany them, a Caregiver in Arizona can step in.

But do you need to prepare anything for their regular doctor’s checkup? Yes. To guide you, here is a short checklist of things to bring when visiting the doctor.

  • Medical Record
    You should be keeping printed records of your loved one’s medical history. These documents include their laboratory results and the doctor’s past prescriptions. Medical records serve as the doctor’s guidance in giving the right diagnosis and treatment for your loved one’s condition.
  • List of Questions
    You might have confusions or doubts about your loved one’s condition. Make a list of these and ensure that you bring these up during the checkup. When you get the answers you need, you will know how to better care for your family member.
  • Writing Materials
    These can be a pair of pen and notebook. You need to write down what the doctor instructs. Your notes serve as reinforcement to their printed instructions. When you’re not around, a provider of Personal Care Services in Scottsdale, Arizona can do this note-taking for you.
  • Medications List
    You should also have a list of the medicines that your loved one is taking and has taken. Maintaining this list helps the doctor have a better idea of your loved one’s medication adherence.
  • Symptoms List
    Have you been observing unusual behavior or health complications in your loved one? Write these down. Then, ask the doctor about them. An update of their symptoms will help identify if their condition is progressing or declining.

As an In-Home Care Agency in Arizona, we also advocate for diligence during doctor’s appointments. So do call us to step in for you when you can’t accompany your loved one to their appointments. If you want to know more about our services, contact us at Home With Help.
