Comfort Keepers Elderly Care At Home Helps With Medication Reminders
Medication reminders can make elderly care at home significantly easier for your family
Did you know that as many as one in three Americans between the ages of 57 to 85 take at least 5 prescription medications each day? As you can imagine, seniors who do not take their medication on time and in exact doses recommended by their doctors, put their health at risk. That is why assistance with medication management is a crucial aspect of elderly care at home. It is vital that your loved one take the proper dosage of their medication on a regular basis. We can help.
It is really no secret that many seniors need a bit of help to get through the day. Those who choose to live at home as opposed to moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility could find themselves faced with many challenges. These include keeping up with daily tasks such as:
- Grocery Shopping
- Pharmacy Visits
- Home maintenance & More
All of these are fairly easy for the average person, but they could be impossible to carry out for some older adults. Elderly care at home is there to make sure your loved one's proper nutritional needs are met and their living conditions are safe and they are staying comfortable.
Not to scare you but according to ABCNews.com, as many as a third of Americans over the age of 57 take at least five prescription medications each day. That number goes up to as many as 20 prescription medications each day for individuals suffering from chronic illnesses. This situation spells danger for many seniors with cognitive impairment or those that are simply to weak to keep up with these demanding schedules. An elderly care at home professional can be there to monitor your loved one, help them take their medication and keep an eye on them to make sure they are not experiencing potential reactions with other medications or side effects. This is crucial and can be a life saver.
At Comfort Keepers, our care providers can help your loved one plan out their medication dosages. They can also read labels to your loved one and remind them to take medication on time.
We also offer technology solutions such as the SafetyChoice® TabSafe unit. This spectacular product organizes and dispenses medications according to a schedule, taking the guesswork out of medication management.
