One of the most critical tasks we perform with our clients concerns medication reminders. Whether there are specific medications that need to be taken pre or post-surgical procedures, or as with many clients, an increasing number of pills that have to be taken each day as part of the normal course of treatment, our trained Caregivers can help to ensure that a doctors recommended regimen is followed.
While this clearly becomes a concern with seniors who are suffering from dementia, it can also be a concern with healthy seniors who have difficulty keeping track of what they have and haven’t taken.
When medications are not taken correctly, this can lead to serious adverse reactions, and in some cases hospitalization is necessary. The reality is that physicians are not able to adequately monitor whether or not their patients are taking medications properly.
Our Caregivers can be by your loved ones side to keep track of their intake, and provide feedback to their doctors as necessary should significant changes occur.
