The TSWF Geriatrics AIM form is intended for Primary Care providers when dealing with aging patients. It focuses on incontinence, falls, dementia, frailty, osteoarthritis (hip/knee), and hearing loss. As this is a fairly new form, feedback is welcome from Internal Medicine providers and Family Medicine providers who deal with the elderly.
