Care at Home: Medication Reminders for Seniors in Fresno, CA and the Surrounding Area

 

From remembering which pills to take when to developing a medication schedule that works long-term, medication can be complicated. If your loved one takes medication, you may find yourself wondering if they can manage their medications on their own. If you are looking for a helping hand, Visiting Angels of Fresno is here to step in. The caregivers at Visiting Angels of Fresno can help your loved one take medication as prescribed, every time.

Visiting Angels of Fresno is a locally owned home care agency that provides care at home to families throughout Fresno, Clovis, and the surrounding cities. Along with other daily living activities such as meal preparation and housekeeping, our caregivers can help your loved one stay on top of their medication.

Our caregivers can’t organize pillboxes or administer medications. What our caregivers can do is provide important reminders to ensure that they are taking their medications at the right time.

Medication Reminders are Important for Seniors

Each time a senior gets a new medication, they have to remember the number they need to take, when they need to take them, and whether to take them on an empty stomach or not. Remembering all this information is difficult for anyone, but especially for seniors.

A simple misunderstanding can lead to missed doses, which can be immediately detrimental to a senior’s health. With the assistance of a senior care professional, your loved one does not have to worry about the details of each medicine.

A Visiting Angel can help your loved one with their medication in the following ways:

  • Giving verbal reminders
  • Making sure that your loved one takes medications as they were prescribed (with a glass of water, etc.)
  • Monitoring client for side effects
  • Setting a timer
