Help with taking your medications properly.

Remembering to take your medications at the right time and at the right dosage can be a challenge for anyone. As we age, it’s a lot easier to forget to take medications or the exact dosage or even time of day or if they should be taken before, after or with meals. In fact, seniors are at the highest risk of not taking medication properly. Missing medications can lead to negative drug interactions, dangerous withdrawal effects, side effects, illness, or even hospitalization. If you find yourself forgetting to take your medication or that your medication routines or instructions are becoming complicated, we can help.

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.

Medication management is important for seniors dealing with medical conditions or ailments. Medication reminders or medication management is even more important for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia as many are prescribed several medications to deal with their diagnosis as well as to promote sleep, reduce anxiety, or improve their moods, making it difficult for them to remember which drug to take when to take it and what the correct dosage is.

My caregivers (Nikko & Zelma) are wonderful. They take very good care of me and always make sure I do what I am supposed to do. They care about me as a person – not as a client – and that is reflected every day when they are here.
