The AGS Foundation for Health in Aging publishes an ongoing series of easy-to-understand, authoritative, and up-to-date health "tip sheets" for older adults and their caregivers. The work of leading geriatrics clinicians and researchers, these Patient Handouts offer seniors and those who care for them advice on key elder health issues.
Patient Handouts are available for the following topics: Avoiding Overmedications, Emergency Preparedness, Flu Prevention, Guide to Healthy Aging, Hot Weather Tips, Ten Medications Older Adults Should Avoid or Use with Caution, New Year Resolutions, Safety Travel, Essential Vaccination Info, and Winter Safety Tips.
Each Patient Handout is customizable to be a unique resource from a treating physician or health care provider to individual patients. These downloadable files can be personalized and printed for a specific patient or their caregiver, to help meet particular health care needs and concerns.
