Medication Safety and Management
Make sure your loved ones are properly taking the correct medications
One of the most important issues facing seniors who like to maintain their independence is medication management. It’s far too simple to miss a dose or take the incorrect amount, especially for those who have multiple medications to be taken throughout the day.
For a good amount of our clients, their health depends not only on medicine, but also taking them accurately. The right medicine, at the right time, and the right amount. The potential problems for incorrectly managing any of these are serious.
According to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, greater than a third of medication-related hospitalizations are because the patients did not take as prescribed. Additionally, the American Pharmacists Association says that not adhering to proper dosage and schedules has been associated with as much as 40% of nursing home admissions. These are alarming statistics for those who have family members that wish to remain independent, but need unique care.
