Comfort Keepers Senior In Home Care: Medication Safety and Management in Anaheim, CA
Learn more about the different medication safety tips and tricks that are used by the senior in home care experts – Comfort Keepers of Anaheim, CA
The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers group reports that more than 30% of medication-related hospitalizations result from patients taking medications incorrectly. Unfortunately many families know that it is quite common for their senior loved one to miss a dose of medication, to forget to take one of their medications on a regular basis, or fail to follow other guidelines applicable to their medications.
Comfort Keepers wants your senior loved one to continue living independently at home just as much as you do. Being at home allows them to enjoy the activities they are used to, but requires that they also focus on morning, noon, and night doses of meds. However, we also want them to have the highest quality of life possible, and this means remaining healthy and avoiding emergencies.
What happens when seniors are in danger of mismanaging their medications if not pointed in the right direction?
Well, one of the key services that Comfort Keepers is helping your senior loved one organize medications properly. While our senior in home care providers don’t physically dispense medication, they are more than happy to read prescription labels or to give reminders for times to take meds.
