I. Determine the feasibility of implementing the geriatric care survivorship intervention in older adults who have completed curative-intent chemotherapy.
I. Assess the impact of a Geriatric Assessment (GA)-guided intervention on patient-reported quality-of-life/physical function (assessed by the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Breast [FACT-B]), geriatric assessment measures (assessed by GA) and objective physical function (assessed by the Short Physical Performance Battery [SPPB]) in older survivors from baseline to 6- and 12-months +/- 4-weeks post-chemotherapy.
II. Determine the impact of intervention on patient reported cognitive function (FACT-Cog) and objective cognitive function (Mini-Cog) from baseline to 6- and 12-months +/- 4-weeks post-chemotherapy.
III. Estimate the effect of the intervention on completion of referral appointments and contacts with primary care providers.
IV. Estimate the effect of the intervention on emergent healthcare utilization (emergency room [ER] visits and hospitalizations) at 6- and 12-months +/- 4 weeks post-chemotherapy.
V. Determine the impact of the intervention on both patient and caregiver satisfaction with care (“Health Care Climate Questionnaire”) from baseline to 6- and 12-months +/- 4-weeks post-chemotherapy.
VI. Determine the impact of intervention on caregiver distress (“Burden Scale for Family Caregivers”) and satisfaction with care (“Health Care Climate Questionnaire”) from baseline to 6- and 12-months +/- 4-weeks post-chemotherapy.
Patients complete geriatric assessments at baseline, 6 months, and 12 months later. Based on the assessments, patients may receive further intervention at survivorship visit. Patients also receive survivorship care educational materials and wear a wearable activity tracking device for 1 year on study.
