Medication Reminders for Seniors in Edgewater, MD and Surrounding Areas
Our trained caregivers provide useful medication reminders for seniors in Edgewater, Bowie, Crofton and surrounding areas in Maryland to ensure that medications are taken as prescribed by a physician
Visiting Angels Edgewater is the leading provider of private home care services in Anne Arundel and Prince George's Counties, helping seniors in the area to maintain independence and quality of life at home. Our trained caregivers typically assist with a plethora of daily routines and activities, such as light housekeeping, laundering, and mobility assistance, and perform other useful tasks.
On request, we can also include medication reminders in your loved one’s personalized care plan and make sure they take their medication on time and in the prescribed doses. As Visiting Angels Edgewater provides non-medical private home care services, our caregivers cannot perform tasks such as administering medications or organizing pill boxes.
Nonetheless, our care experts can provide reminders and ensure your parent takes medication from pill-boxes pre-organized by a family caregiver or a professional healthcare provider.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important
The majority of older adults, especially those 65 and over, need to take multiple medications at various times in the day. Managing a number of different medications at demanding schedules and remembering, for example, which pill goes after meals and which one should be taken on an empty stomach can be quite challenging for seniors.
This can lead to missed doses and undermine the medicine’s effectiveness. In some cases, skipping medications and medication mistakes can be even hazardous to one’s overall health too – especially for those with conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure.
Not to worry – these medication concerns can be easily addressed with the help of Visiting Angels Edgewater. 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
