Visiting Angels Provides Medication Reminders to Aging Adults in Adrian, MI and Surrounding Areas
Our home care services include providing medication reminders to ensure seniors in Adrian, Brooklyn, Jackson and surrounding areas in South Central Michigan take their medications correctly each day
At Visiting Angels South Central Michigan, we provide support to local seniors and help them to continue living safely and independently at home despite certain age-related challenges. Our in-home elder care services offer adequate assistance with numerous activities of daily living such as housekeeping, meal preparation, shopping and others.
When seniors require assistance to take their medication as prescribed, we can step in and provide medication reminders too. As our care agency provides non-medical home care services, our caregivers cannot administer medications or organize pillboxes, but they can remind your loved one to take their pills and help prevent medication errors.
The Importance of Medication Reminders
It is quite common for older adults, especially those over 65, to take multiple medications on a daily basis. For a certain drug or medication to take effect, it is imperative that it is taken on time and as instructed.
Problems may arise when each of these pills has to be taken at a different time – morning, afternoon or before going to bed – and in a different way – with food, with water or on an empty stomach.
For many aging adults, complicated medication schedules can be simply too hard to follow through, which is how medication errors and skipped doses occur in most cases.
Our dedicated caregivers can help your loved one with medications by:
- Giving them verbal reminders
- Setting a timer so your parent knows that it is time to take their medications
- Ensuring that medications are taken in accordance with instructions, such as after meals or with a full glass of water
- Keeping tabs on medication schedule and dates when each medication was taken
- Monitoring for side effects
