Why Are Medication Reminders Important for Seniors?
If you have been helping an aging loved one take daily medication or take medication yourself, you know how difficult it can be to remember what medication to take and when to take it. Daily medications become more difficult as we age. Many seniors take a variety of pills, and often these come with specific instructions. Some medications need to be taken at certain times of the day, and others must be taken with meals, water, or on an empty stomach. It’s not easy for a senior to keep track of all this, especially when suffering from dementia.
Although a professional in-home caregiver strictly provides personal care and cannot administer medications or organize pillboxes, we can offer vital reminders when medication is necessary. When family members or medical providers manage medications or treatment plans, our caregivers can make sure a senior follow direction and stays on schedule.
Medication reminders include:
- Verbal reminders for each treatment
- Setting a timer to create a separate reminder
- Ensuring that specific instructions for each medication are followed
- Watching a senior take the medication to ensure safety and compliance
- Recording dates and times for medications for concerned family members and healthcare providers
- Monitoring possible side effects from treatment, mainly when a new medication is introduced
