Seniors often forget to take their medication on time or in the correct dosage. Implementing medication reminders is a great first step to keeping your parent healthy. Sometimes a pill box or a pill organizer may not be enough to manage your loved one's medicines. Caring Senior Service offers medication reminder services for seniors to simplify this process. Our in-home caregivers provide the medication management to help ensure that your parent is getting their medication on schedule and safely.
The proper administration of multiple medications throughout the day can be a challenge for most people, especially for the elderly. Our caregivers assist in medication management for the elderly by tracking medication times and reminding clients to take their medications on schedule.
Medication management for the elderly includes the following tasks to help your loved one remain healthy and safe:
Seniors 50+ use more prescription and over-the-counter medicines than any other age group. They are the at highest risk for being hospitalized for a medication mishap. Many of these mishaps could have been avoided with medication management.
1.3 million Americans are injured each year due to medication errors. The most common causes of these errors in seniors are confusing packaging, poor communication, overdosing, and dangerous interactions with other medications or foods.
At Caring, we charge a flat, hourly rate regardless of the services required. This rate stays the same on weekends, nights, and holidays, so you or a loved one can get care when you need it.
Our rates vary by location. Please reach out to your local Caring Senior Service location to find out what their hourly rate is.
