Medication Reminders For Seniors in Johns Creek, GA
Many seniors would rather stay at home than move into an assisted living facility or a nursing home. While aging in place is advantageous for elders in many respects, it is not without its drawbacks. Keeping up with daily duties (such as grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning), running errands, requesting transportation from family members, and so on. This is where Comfort Keepers senior home care can help.
Furthermore, not all seniors are in good health. Many seniors have restricted mobility, are suffering from memory loss, or just require in-home care to assist them with everyday chores and duties. Another difficulty is remembering to take drugs as directed. According to MD Magazine, nearly one-third of seniors in America take at least five pills per day, with chronically ill seniors taking up to twenty.
Taking drugs can be dangerous to the health of seniors who live alone and care for themselves. It's simple to forget to take some prescriptions, or to exchange the dosages with another and take more than is recommended. Not to mention additional directions, potential interactions with other medications, and negative effects. Any of these things can be harmful to a senior's health. As you may know, it is critical for seniors to take their medications on time. Even a single missed dosage can have long-term consequences for their health, which is why Comfort Keepers suggests combining medication reminders with our long-term care service. This manner, you never have to be concerned about your loved one's health.
