Quality Home Health: Medication Safety & Management Solutions in Palatine, IL
Help your senior loved maintain quality home health with their medication by using a medication safety device
Getting older inevitably means having to take prescription medication. Few individuals over the age of 65 are spared this. As a means of curing certain medical conditions or preventing the development of others, millions of seniors across the country end up having to follow very complicated prescription medication schedules. Seniors are not strangers to taking multiple medications a day and may take as many as 20 on a daily basis. Considering the fact that an individual’s health and well being may well depend upon whether or not they take their medication properly and on time, it plays a major role in quality home health.
Quality home health professionals are trained to help older adults stay on top of their medication. Unfortunately, for many seniors, taking their prescription medication as prescribed can be a matter of life and death.
At Comfort Keepers, we offer the seniors that we care for two options for the easy handling of their medications. The first type of care that we provide as part of our quality home health services includes medication reminders. Medication reminders by one of our caregivers entail a range of medication management tasks. They are reminders for when and how to take medications, reading prescription labels, and picking up new medication at the pharmacy. Our care providers do not dispense or administer medication as they are not health care professionals.
The second solution we provide as part of our quality home health care services are medication management devices. These devices alert seniors of when and where to take their medication and leave no room for error. Of course, technology, no matter how good, can never replace a senior care professional, which is why we always advise our clients to opt for both solutions for greater safety.
The following are our medication safety and management products:
Holds up to 60 medication cups containing 20 and 25 pills each. Notifies clients to take their doses.
We developed this system to handle even the most complex medication schedules. Should your loved one miss their dose, the system will automatically alert people on their list of responders.
MedMinder is a pillowbox built to safely store medications. The great thing about it is that it can be managed through an online portal. Truly revolutionary.
