Medication Reminders as a Part of Our Home Care For Seniors in Vancouver, WA
Reassurance that your loved one is properly taking their medication and managing their health with our home care for seniors
Many seniors prefer to stay in their home rather than move into an assisted living facility or a nursing home. While aging in place is beneficial for seniors in so many ways, this way of living also carries certain challenges. For example, keeping up with everyday tasks (grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning) running errands, requiring transportation from family members, etc. This is where Comfort Keepers home care for seniors can help.
In addition, not all seniors are healthy. Many seniors have limited mobility, troubles with memory loss, or simply need in home care services to help them with daily activities and tasks.
Another challenge is taking medications as prescribed. According to MD Magazine, almost one-third of seniors living in America take minimum five prescriptions per day, whereas seniors that suffer from chronic illnesses take up to twenty medications.
For seniors who live on their own and care for themselves, taking medications may be a real threat to their health. It’s easy to forget taking some medications or switch the dosages with another one and take more than prescribed. Not to mention paying attention to special instructions, potential reactions with other medications and side effects. Any of this can have a negative impact on a senior’s health. As you may already know, it is crucial for seniors to keep up with their medication. Even missing a dose here or there can have long-lasting effects on their health, which is why Comfort Keepers recommends pairing medication reminders with our long-term care service. This way you never have to worry about your loved one's health being jeopardized.
