We also offer medication reminders, a useful service that helps older adults struggling with complex medication schedules take their pills on time and in the correct dose. Since our in-home health care services do not include medical care, we are unable to administer or organize medications, but we can make medication management much easier through reminders.
Why Medication Reminders Are Important for Seniors in Boulder County
Many seniors take 10+ medications daily, some of which need to be taken at specific times during the day and/or with or without food. Remembering how to take each medication can be hard even for healthy seniors, let alone for those with cognitive decline or conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. Often, this is when senior citizens and their loved ones need a little help. This is where in-home health care services from Visiting Angels of Boulder County come in.
When someone has to take 10+ medications, it can be a blessing for them to have someone nearby who knows what medications they are supposed to take and when. Whether it is someone who visits every day, or just during times of crisis, our caregivers can be trusted to come in and remind your loved one to take their medications at scheduled times.
Our home care providers can assist your loved one with medication management by providing medication reminders. The service includes:
- Verbally reminding the seniors when to take their medications during the caregiver’s visit
- Setting an alarm so that the seniors would take their medications properly when they are home alone
- Ensuring medications are taken as prescribed, for example with water or on an empty stomach
- Reading labels on medications
- Writing down the dates and times each medication was taken
- Keeping an eye out for side effects when new medications are introduced
