Why Medication Reminders for Seniors Are Important
Seniors who need to take several different medications throughout the day can easily mix their meds up or forget to take some of them. In addition, most pills need to be taken at a certain time of the day and in a certain way (with food, water or on an empty stomach). Taking medications correctly can often be confusing for older adults, especially those who have been diagnosed with dementia.
This is why we have included medication reminders for seniors in our in-home supportive services. Our caregivers can set a timer so that an alarm will go off every time your loved one needs to take their medications. They can also tell your parent that it is time for their dose and make sure they are following instructions. Our caregivers can keep an eye on your loved one and alert you if they notice any of the unwanted side-effects.
For a medicine to be effective, consistency is necessary. If, for example, your loved one forgets to take their blood pressure medicine, they can put their health at risk.
