Ensuring that seniors take their medications correctly and at the right time can be crucial to their health and well-being. The average senior takes multiple medications daily and it is common for these medications to require a specific diet or lifestyle. It can be difficult for seniors to keep track of all of these requirements, especially if they suffer from memory loss or have been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. That is why Comfort Keepers of Calgary, AB offers in home health care services that include medication assistance, to give you peace of mind that your senior loved one is staying on top of their health.
Comfort Keepers in home health care services are designed to help seniors maintain their daily routine. We understand that each senior is unique and has their own individual needs and preferences, which is why we customize our care plans to your specific situation and are flexible as changes in needs arise. Along with providing services that help maintain a healthy daily routine, a caregiver will set up medication reminders and make sure that seniors take their medications at the right time and take them with proper foods, if necessary.
Managing multiple prescription medications requires organization and attention to detail. If a senior misses a dose of their medication or takes the wrong medication at a specified time the prescription can become ineffective or cause a negative reaction. An in home health care care provider can create an organization system that will make sure that your senior loved one is getting the medications they need when they need them.
Our caregivers can also help seniors by calling the pharmacy for refills and picking them up, helping them with insurance paperwork to pay for their medication, and providing transportation to appointments or physical therapy.
