Monthly Free Form - Record of Doctor Visit

This month's free form is the Record of Doctor Visit form.  This form is all about being prepared. The time you spend with a doctor is usually very limited. Presenting him/her with the correct questions and details of problems will make him/her more willing to work with you. This form has a place to enter the supporting data you will need to remember to take to your doctor visit such as the medication list, vitals you have taken, etc. There is a place to write out questions/problems the caregiver wants to address with the doctor, a place to record doctor’s new orders and other information while you are there. There is also a place to enter the next appointment at the bottom.

The first link is from Alz.org and explains the early signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's and also talks about the differences between Alzheimer's and typical age-related changes.
