Thanks for posting your query.

I can appreciate your concern for your parents.

Yes, check up at Apollo is good.

Looking to their age please see that any check up plan that you opt for at least includes following,

1. Complete blood count
2. Kidney functions
3. Lipid profile
4. Diabetes check up
5. Liver function test
6. General physical examination
7. Cardiogram
8. Urine examination
9. Serum calcium
10 .X XXXXXXX of chest
11. PSA for males and TSH for females.
12. Mamography and pap test for females.
13. Ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis.

These tests should be carried out. In presence of specific complaints more can be advised.

Please consult your family physician after going for tests for any advice or treatment that they might have to take.

Wishing them great health.
