Elder Care Services: Visiting Angels Caregivers Provide Seniors in Chelsea, MA and the Surrounding Area with Medication Reminders
Visiting Angels of Chelsea, MA is the leading provider of elder care services in Revere, Somerville, Chelsea, and nearby cities. We employ caregivers that typically assist with a variety of routines and activities, such as light housekeeping, daily chores, and mobility assistance. Upon request, our caregivers can provide medication reminders in your loved one’s personalized home care plan, while also making sure the correct amount of medicine is taken at the correct time. The Visiting Angels of Chelsea, MA provides elder care services but cannot administer medications or organize pill boxes. However, our care providers are able to give reminders and ensure that medicine from pill boxes have been taken, as long as the container has been pre-organized by a family member or professional healthcare provider.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important
Most older adults, especially those 65 and over, take many pills at various times throughout their day; managing and remembering to take the necessary pills with demanding schedules, like if a pill can or cannot be taken on an empty stomach, can be overwhelming for an aging senior. This can lead to missed doses, which leads to the lack of effectiveness for the medicine(s). In some cases, skipping a medication or medications can be hazardous to one’s overall health—like those who take high blood pressure medicine, or medicine for diabetes.
No need to worry though, those medication concerns can be easily taken care of with the help of Visiting Angels of Chelsea, MA. Our care experts can ensure your mom or dad take medications correctly by:
- Giving a verbal reminder
- Setting a timer
- Making sure medications are taken as instructed (with a glass of water, before or after meals, and so on)
- Tracking dates and times when each medication was taken
- Monitoring for side-effects
