How Our Medication Reminders Can Help Seniors in and Around Annapolis
Plenty of seniors take multiple medications daily. These medications can help seniors keep up their health, help manage chronic illnesses, and aid in recovering from an injury or surgical procedure.
As it is often the case, older adults need to take medications at different times of the day and with certain instructions in mind, like taking a pill after a meal, with water or on an empty stomach. Now, managing a couple of medications may not be an issue for seniors, but when they have to take more than 5 or more than 10 medications on a daily basis, medication accidents frequently occur. This is especially true for seniors with memory-related conditions like dementia or seniors who have trouble getting pill containers open because they have a medical condition like Parkinson's.
If you opt for in-home senior care from Visiting Angels Annapolis, you can have peace of mind knowing someone will always be there to ensure your loved one takes their medications correctly and on time.
Here is how our home care providers can help your loved one with medication intake:
- Setting a timer so your loved one could take their medications on time even when they are home alone
- Providing verbal reminders that it is time to take pills
- Making certain medications are taken in accordance with instructions
- Supervising your loved one as they take their medications to make sure it is done correctly
- Tracking the times and dates when each medication was taken
- Watching out for any medication side effects
Since our senior care services do not include medical care, our home care providers cannot organize or administer medications, but they can remind seniors when to take pills, pick up prescribed medications, read labels and much more.
