With our services, older adults are able to age at home and maintain their independence longer. Our caregivers are trained to assist clients with various daily activities, from meal preparation and light housekeeping to transportation, bathing and other important tasks.
We also provide medication reminders to ensure that senior take their pills correctly. Although we cannot administer medications or organize pill boxes, we can remind older adults to take their medications that have already been organized by their loved ones or a health care provider.
For medication to be completely effective, they need to be taken properly. For seniors who need to take multiple meds throughout the day, following instructions for each of them can be too confusing. For instance, some meds need to be taken in the morning, some before bedtime, certain pills need to be taken with food and others on an empty stomach.
Our caregivers can help by proving medication reminders and making sure that the instructions for medications are being followed. In addition, our home care providers can set a timer so that your parent knows when it is time to take a dose or give them a verbal reminder. If needed, our home health care aides can keep an eye on your loved one when they are taking their meds to make sure it is done properly.
