Our In-Home Health Care Experts Provide Medication Reminders for Seniors in Wheat Ridge, CO and Surrounding Areas
We help seniors in Wheat Ridge, Denver, Golden and surrounding areas in Colorado take their medications as prescribed by medical professionals, preventing medication errors and missed doses
Visiting Angels Denver is an in-home health care agency that caters to seniors who need help with activities of daily living, from hygiene and mobility to housekeeping, meal prep and transportation. We also provide medication reminders, helping seniors take their medications properly and at the right time and thus preventing skipped doses, overdoses, and other medication errors.
However, it is important to keep in mind that our caregivers cannot administer medications or organize pillboxes, as we are not a provider of medical care services. What our care experts can do is remind older adults when to take medications that family members or medical care providers have already organized.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important
Many seniors take multiple medications on a daily basis and have to be careful when and how they take them. For instance, some medications need to be taken at a certain time of the day and others should be taken before, during or after a meal. Managing complex medication schedules can be difficult for older adults, especially those with cognitive conditions.
Our in-home health care experts can help your loved one by providing medication reminders. This service includes:
- Either verbally reminding your loved one when to take their medications or setting a timer so they could manage their medication schedule even when home alone
- Ensuring medication instructions are being followed
- Watching your loved one take their medication to be certain they do it properly
- Noting down the dates and times that each medication was taken
- Looking out for any medication side effects
