Help with taking your medications properly.
Remembering to take your medications at the right time and the right dosage can be hard for anyone. As we age, taking medication becomes even easier to forget. In fact, older adults are at the highest risk for not taking medication properly. Missing medications can lead to negative drug interactions, side effects, illness, or even hospitalization. If you find yourself forgetting to take your medication or your medication routine is becoming complicated, we can help.
What it is:
Our caregivers can remind you when it is time to take your medications and help you follow the instructions provided by your physician. We can also assist with opening pill bottles and coordinate trips to the pharmacy to ensure you don’t run out of your medications.
Who is it best suited for:
Medication management is important for seniors dealing with medical conditions or ailments. Even more important is medication management for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia as many are prescribed numerous medications to assist with their impairment as well as to promote sleep, reduce anxiety, and improve their mood, making it difficult for them to remember which drug to take, when to take it and what the correct dosage is.
