Medication is essential for your loved one’s well-being. As seniors age, however, it becomes more difficult to manage all the challenges of medications. For many elderly, home care is the best way to consistently manage their medication. A caregiver can also provide medication reminders to ensure your loved one is living their healthiest life at home.
But how do you know when your loved one needs help?
Firstly, if your loved one has vision loss or memory issues, this could result in your loved one having difficulties managing medications. You may see pills mixed up or in disarray which could mean they may also be confusing medications packaging.
Secondly, prescriptions may have dangerous interactions with over-the-counter medications or foods. If your loved one feels unwell and/or this leads to hospitalization, it could be a strong signal that your loved one needs immediate help managing medication.
Examples of Medication Management
Whether your loved one needs a medication reminder every day or medication tracking once a week, we have the perfect caregiver for:
Complete inventory of medications
Maintain and track medication schedule
Report any side effects to you and medical personnel
Reminders to take medications on time and in the proper dosage
Picking up prescriptions
We Transform Lives with Medication Assistance
Your loved one’s life will transform with proper medication management from a caregiver. Having a caregiver track, manage and provide medication reminders is often a lifeline for anyone who no longer has the energy, motivation, or physical well-being to comfortably handle the complexity of medications. As a result of this care, your loved one continues to feel secure, warm, and valued.
But, seniors aren’t the only ones whose lives are improved by medication management. Family caregivers find respite, relief, and peace of mind knowing their loved one has the medication reminders required to live a healthy life.
