Why Medication Reminders Are Important for Seniors
It is common for seniors to take multiple medications throughout the day. Often there are pills that need to be taken at a certain time each day – morning, afternoon or before bed – and pills that should be taken with food, water or on an empty stomach. Managing the schedule and instructions of multiple medications can be confusing, especially for seniors with dementia.
