Homewatch CareGivers Offers Medication Safety for Seniors

Medication management is an important aspect of senior care. The elderly are likely to develop at least one, if not multiple chronic conditions that require different prescription medications to manage – often from different health care providers. To keep your loved one healthy, Homewatch CareGivers can help manage your loved one’s medications so they never miss a dose, accidentally double a dose, or take with the wrong foods.

Here are some medication management tips our caregivers use:

  • Keeping a detailed list of medications, including doses and dosage times. Include over-the-counter medications such as vitamins or any herbal remedies for your elderly love one’s health care provider.
  • Use a pill dispenser as a medication management system.
  • Store medications properly in a cool, dry place, or any other place where they must be stored.
  • Write a journal of any changes in the patient’s mood or behavior when new medications are introduced, dosages change, or certain pills are eliminated, to communicate to the client’s physician.

If you or your loved one needs assistance with medication management or medication safety, contact us today at (800) 777-9770!
