After all evaluations and diagnostic procedures, the specialists meet with the patient and family members or caregivers to discuss findings and develop a personalized plan of treatment, which may include:
- Suggestions for prescribing new or different medication or discontinuing current medication
- Counseling sessions for the patient and/or family members
- Health education and advice
- Information about appropriate community resources
- Safety suggestions
- Medical recommendations
- Access to participate in research and clinical trials
If you authorize it, the primary care physician will receive a detailed written summary of the evaluation, findings and recommendations. Patients without a personal physician may wish to have their post-evaluation care continue with UC San Diego Health physicians. We can coordinate your appointments with UC San Diego Health primary and specialty care services.

- Daniel Sewell, MD
With a goal of enabling seniors to live independently and stay active, the treatment plan may include referral to:
