Important Reminders Regarding Medication

Anyone who has assisted with the home care of an aging loved one with daily medication or took medication themselves knows how difficult it can be to remember which medication to take when and at what time of day it is necessary. As we grow older, taking our daily medications becomes more difficult. There are many different medications that many seniors take, and many of these medications come with specific instructions. Some medicines must be taken at times of the day, while others must be taken with meals, water, or an empty stomach, depending on the circumstances. It's difficult for a senior to keep track of everything, especially if they have Alzheimer's disease.

A professional in-home caregiver can only provide personal care and cannot administer medications or organize pillboxes does not preclude us from giving important reminders when the prescription is required. When family members or medical providers manage a senior's medications or treatment plans, our caregivers can ensure that the senior follows directions and adheres to the prescribed schedule. Medication reminders include the following:

  • Medication reminders
  • Set an alarm to create a separate reminder for each task.
  • Maintaining strict compliance with the specific instructions for each medication.
  • Observing a senior take their medication to ensure their safety and compliance
  • Keeping track of medication dates and times for the benefit of concerned family and friends and healthcare providers
  • Monitoring potential side effects of treatment, mainly when a new prescription is introduced, is essential.
