Home Care Experts Will Make Sure Your Loved One Sticks to Their Medication Schedule
Chronic health conditions, and even some acute ones, can make it near impossible for older adults to adhere to their medication schedule. At the same time, almost all seniors face health-related challenges on a daily basis. In effect, this means that it is quite common for older adults to have trouble sticking to a routine when it comes to medication. This is further complicated by the fact that many seniors have complex medication routines requiring up to 20 medications to be taken at different times during the day. Nearly all older adults need assistance with medication management.
If you are not able to help your loved one in this regard, a professional in-home caregiver can help your loved one take the right dosage at the right time to prevent any complications or other mishaps.*
