Eldercare Solutions Include Medication Reminders by Comfort Keepers

Caregivers help retrieve medications from the pharmacy and ensure they are properly taken

Staying healthy in old age can be a bit of a balancing act. The issue is that as we age, we become weaker and things that we used to do without much thought, such as eating or getting dressed, can become a challenge. At Comfort Keepers, we believe that non-medical senior care should be tailored to the needs of each individual, which is why we developed eldercare solutions like medication management.

The best care for any one individual will depend on a wide variety of factors. This can include chronic and other conditions they have been diagnosed with, the prescription medication they take, their lifestyle and preferences.

Seniors often take prescription medication, perhaps taking multiple medications at different times throughout the day. The situation is worsened for many seniors that may be facing memory problems like those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Prescription drug regiments are often very complex and present a major problem for many seniors.

At Comfort Keepers, we have multiple eldercare solutions when it comes to medication management. The one most seniors opt for is to have medication management as part of their regular non-medical senior care.

For those seniors who are not yet ready for non-medical senior care but need help in this department, we offer medication dispensers. These devices dispense medication and inform your loved one to take it. If they do not take the medication on time, an automated service will inform their loved ones they skipped their dose. This is a great tool which does not cost as much as non-medical senior care but can make a major difference in your loved one's life.

However, nothing can really top having an in-home caregiver. They will be there for your loved one any time they need it, helping them take their medications on time and making sure they are not experiencing any side effects. If they should experience complications, a caregiver will be there to react quickly and appropriately, making sure your loved one is staying safe as they age.
