Our Caring Senior Service Providers Offer Medication Safety & Management in Los Angeles, CA
With help from a Comfort Keepers caregiver and in-home technology, seniors can manage medications safely
For seniors with health conditions, taking medications in accordance with doctor’s orders is vital. Taking prescribed medications on time and in the correct dosages prevents health complications, keeps chronic conditions under control, and improves overall well-being.
Older adults are, of course, fully aware of the importance of proper medication management. The problem is, however, that most seniors use a lot of medications on a daily basis, sometimes even more 20. With so many medications to manage daily, it can become difficult to keep track of what medication to take and when.
How Caregivers Can Help with Medication Management
Our caring senior service providers can help your loved one with medication safety and management, creating a viable medication management system that can allow your aging parent or relative to easily handle their daily medication intake. With the support of a devoted caregiver, your loved one will never again miss their dose of medication and you can have peace of mind that they are safe and well taken care of.
An advantage of hiring a caring senior service provider is that they can pay attention to any negative side-effects of specific medications, preventing health difficulties or reacting to them in a timely manner. Our care experts can offer assistance with picking up prescribed medications from the pharmacy, which is especially useful for seniors who do not drive or have mobility issues.
Should your loved one feel like taking a walk or going outside for some fresh air, our caring senior service providers can accompany them to the nearest pharmacy, so your aging parent or relative can pick up their medications on their own and engage in some physical activity along the way.
Comfort Keepers Products Promote Independence
If your loved one would prefer to manage their medications independently, Comfort Keepers offers an alternative solution. We recommend various medication management products that are designed to allow seniors to take care of medication management on their own. One of our caring senior service providers can visit your loved one’s home and familiarize them with all the devices we currently offer. They can show your parent or relative how each device works and outline their benefits, helping your loved one choose which product is the perfect fit for their needs.
