Our senior care experts can provide medication reminders to help seniors take their prescribed medications correctly and at the right time each day. Because we strictly provide essential personal care, we cannot administer medications or organize pill boxes, but we will help with reminders.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important for Seniors
It is common for seniors to take multiple medications throughout the day. Often there are pills that need to be taken at a certain time each day – morning, afternoon or before bed – and pills that should be taken with food, water or on an empty stomach. Managing the schedule and instructions of multiple medications can be confusing, especially for seniors with dementia.
Our caregivers can help with:
- Watching seniors take or administer their medication to make sure it is done successfully
- Tracking the dates and times that each medication was taken
- Monitoring for any side-effects or symptoms when new medications are introduced
- Setting a timer
- Giving a verbal reminder
- Making sure instructions for medications are followed
In most cases, taking medications correctly and consistently is essential to the medicine's effectiveness.
