Medication Reminders for Seniors in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties
Visiting Angels Central Coast is the leading home care agency for seniors in Scotts Valley, Watsonville, Marina, Carmel, Santa Cruz, Aptos, Salinas and throughout Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties in California. Our caregivers are trained to provide highly personalized, quality home care services and assist aging adults with various Activities of Daily Living, also known as ADLs. In most cases, we provide help with common daily routines required to maintain a comfortable life at home, such as homemaking, cooking, laundry, mobility, accompaniment and more.
When needed, we can also provide medication reminders and help aging clients placed in our care to take their prescribed medications correctly. As we strictly provide essential personal care for seniors, our caregivers cannot administer medications or organize pillboxes, but they can make sure your loved one never misses their daily dose of medications.
Why Medication Reminders Are So Important for Seniors
Seniors often have trouble juggling multiple medications throughout the day. Keeping up with demanding timetables and confusing instructions is a challenge for many aging adults, a challenge that can turn into a medical concern as it is essential that medications are taken correctly in order to be effective. To make matters worse, failing to take certain medications on time, like blood pressure or diabetes therapies, can have serious consequences and even endanger one’s overall health.
However, with quality home care services from Visiting Angels Central Coast, these matters are easily addressed.
Here’s how our caregivers can help your loved one take their medications correctly:
- Giving a verbal reminder when it is time to take medications
- Setting a timer to remind Mom or Dad when to take their pills
- Reading labels and making sure medication instructions are being adhered to
- Tracking the times and dates when each medication was taken
- Monitoring for any side effects
