Medication Safety and Management
Make sure your loved ones take medications correctly
Medication management is one of the most critical issues seniors who live independently face. It’s all too easy to miss a dose or take an incorrect dose, especially for seniors who require several different medications throughout the day. But with the assistance of a caregiver or Comfort Keepers® medication management products, seniors can maintain their independence and quality of life.
For many of our home care clients, their health depends not only on their medications but on taking them accurately. This means taking the right medicine at the right dose, at the right time of day. The potential consequences for taking medications incorrectly is a genuine concern.
According to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, more than a third of medication-related hospitalizations are due to patients not taking their medicine as prescribed.
Additionally, the American Pharmacists Association states that medication non-adherence has been associated with as many as 40 percent of nursing home admissions. While these statistics may alarm family members of seniors who wish to remain independent, we can help.
