at this stage (Ball, Dains, Flynn, Solomon, & Stewart, 2015). Targeted Questions Targeted questions to include in my interview with this client include questions assessing his mental capacity, sensory levels, main health concerns, medical history, current medications, functional abilities, home safety, advance directives, and financial resources for future care. Examples of these question include: What brings you in today? What are your main concerns? Can you hear me well? Do you have any difficulties with hearing or seeing? Do you have an advance directive? Do you know what those are? Do you need further information regarding advance directives? Can you tell me what medications you are taking? Do you understand the purpose of your medications? Are you able to take them on your own, or is there someone to help you? Can you describe your typical day for me? Are you able to prepare your meals? Do you need help with daily tasks?
