Comfort Keepers In Home Care For Elderly Adults Includes Medication Reminders
Caregivers in Federal Way, WA, help seniors take their medications properly and at the correct time
Very few seniors do not take prescription medication, and, for the most part, seniors take a number of medications each day. If your loved one has been having trouble keeping track of their prescription drug schedule, it may be a good idea to look into in home care for elderly and consider how it may be helpful for them.
A number of factors contribute to the trouble many seniors have when it comes to their prescription drug regimen. To begin with, medications can be extremely complex. Some are taken several times a day, some only once but at an odd time during the day that does not overlap with other medications, while others can be taken every other day, a couple of times a week or once a week.
As you can imagine, such complex schedules can be particularly intricate and only the most disciplined among us can keep up. Professional in home care for elderly adults comes in handy in this instance as a caregiver will be tasked with making sure everything is going according to plan.
Some seniors face physical impairments that can make it difficult to keep up with their prescription medication schedule even if they remember when to take which pill. Many older adults suffer from arthritis, osteoporosis and even Parkinson's disease which can make opening pill bottles painful. Further, they may be bedridden and simply unable to get up and take their medication.
Seniors who suffer from Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia may have trouble keeping track of their medication schedule, particularly in the later stages of the disease. Specialized in home care for elderly adults can help seniors stay on track and make sure they are putting their best foot forward when it comes to battling their condition or conditions head on.
Professionals that provide home senior care, besides medication reminders, will keep track of your loved one and make sure they are not experiencing dangerous side effects of their prescription medication.
