Medication Reminders Are Part of Our In-Home Health Care Services for Seniors in Longmont, CO and Surrounding Areas

Visiting Angels provides useful medication reminders for seniors in Longmont, Boulder, Louisville and surrounding areas in Boulder County, CO and thus prevents medication errors and skipped doses

Visiting Angels of Boulder County is a provider of in-home health care services that make aging in place possible for virtually all seniors, regardless of age, medical conditions or special requests. We can help your loved one with a range of activities, from hygiene and mobility to meal prep, housekeeping and transportation.

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. This is where our in-home health care services come in.

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
