Proper medication management is often one of the biggest challenges in senior years. Considering that many older adults take more than five prescription medications per day, with some seniors using as many as 15 or 20 medications daily, it is easy to skip or take an incorrect dose.
For seniors with chronic conditions or those who are taking medications to prevent health complications, taking the right dose of the right medication on time is crucial for maintaining good health.
At Comfort Keepers, we offer two solutions for medication management, including home help care services that include medication reminders and medication safety and management devices. Ideally, your loved one should combine both options. This way, a caregiver can remind them to take their meds while visiting them and when they are home alone, the device will alert them when it is time to take their prescribed medications.
Home Help Care Keeps Seniors Safe
As previously indicated, our home help care providers can provide reminders for doses and perform other medication management tasks, such as reading labels or picking up prescriptions from your local pharmacy, but they do not dispense medications.
To complement this service, we offer state-of-the-art pill dispenser systems that can allow your loved one to take full control over their medication schedule, eliminating any confusion or guesswork out of the equation.
Let us take a look at the medication safety devices we offer in your area:
This is an advanced, easy to use pill dispenser that can hold as many as 60 medication cups. Each cup can hold up to 25 pills. It is designed for complex medication schedules, organizing medications and reminding clients when to take their doses.
This industry-leading product holds four cartridges, which can feature 16 or 32 dose sizes. The system can handle the most complex of medication schedules. In case a client skips their dose, the unit alerts a caregiver or family member.
This is an advanced pillbox that keeps medications safe and secure until it is time for your loved one to take their dose.
