Medication Reminders for Seniors in Loveland, CO and Surrounding Areas
At Visiting Angels Loveland, we offer dependable in-home care to seniors living in Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and surrounding areas in Colorado’s Northern Front Range. Our goal is to help seniors live out their golden years at home, where they feel safe, comfortable and loved. Our caregivers are trained to assist our clients with a wide variety of services such as meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, transportation and more.
Providing medication reminders is also one of our essential home health care services, especially important to those seniors who have been diagnosed with some form of dementia. Although we are not allowed to administer medications and organize pill dispensers, we can remind seniors to take their pills that have already been organized by a health care provider or a family member.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important
To be completely effective, medications need to be taken correctly and at a certain time of the day. For example, some pills need to be taken with and some without food. Some medications should be taken in the morning, while others are meant to be taken before bedtime. These instructions need to be strictly followed, and when a senior has to take several medications throughout the day they can get easily confused.
That is where our home care providers step in.
Our caregivers can remind your loved one to take their meds by telling them directly or by setting a timer. They can also make sure the instructions are being strictly followed and that your parent has taken their pills successfully. Our caregivers can also keep an eye on your loved one and notify you if they notice some of the side effects.
Skipping their meds or not taking them correctly can significantly affect your parent’s health. However, with medication reminders this problem can be easily avoided.
Meaningful Home Health Care Options from Visiting Angels Caregivers
As mentioned, medication reminders are just one of the home health care services we offer. Our caregivers can also help your loved one with grocery shopping, running errands, meal preparation, light household chores, showering, toileting and getting dressed. We can also provide your parent with meaningful companionship and conversation during mealtime.
