We provide various assistive services that help seniors with maintaining a high quality of life and independence at home.

When required, we also provide medication reminders and help senior clients take their meds in the correct doses and at the right time. Like we already mentioned, we are a non-medical care agency, meaning our home health care aides cannot administer medication or arrange pillboxes. They can, however, be there to provide useful reminders for seniors to take medications from pre-organized pillboxes.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important
Aging adults are often prescribed multiple medications to manage their chronic conditions. Problems may arise when seniors forget to take pills or get confused with complicated timetables and instructions. Medication errors can lower the effectiveness of the prescribed drugs and even cause negative side-effects or health complications. Visiting Angels Jenkintown is here to prevent medication mistakes and give you peace of mind.
Our caregivers can help by:
- Giving a verbal reminder that it is medication time
- Setting a timer near the bed or in the living room so that your parent can hear it
- Making sure your loved one is taking their pills as instructed (with food or with a glass of water)
- Keeping track of times and dates when the medications were taken
- Monitoring for side-effects from multiple medications
