It's important to communicate well with your health care providers at any age. But when you're an older adult, it's even more critical.
To help, the National Institute on Aging (NIA) has an online infographic that offers five quick tips on making the most out of your doctor's visits. Tips include gathering a list of medications you're taking and any questions you have. Also, don't be afraid to ask your doctor to speak up or repeat themselves if you can't hear them well.
Visit NIA's website for digital and print versions of the infographic.
