Comfort Keepers Provides Useful Medication Reminders In Victoria, BC
Comfort Keepers is the leading provider of customized in-home senior care services in Canada, proudly serving Victoria and the surrounding communities in British Columbia. Our trained, seasoned caregivers provide aging adults in the area with ample care and assistance so they could continue living a happier, healthier, more fulfilled life at home.
As medication mistakes present a major health hazard to older adults, one of the services we regularly provide in your area is medication reminders. While Comfort Keepers only provides non-medical care services, meaning our team members are not certified to administer medication, we can assist with medication reminders and help senior clients take their medications as prescribed. A professional caregiver can:
- Open medication containers
- Read labels and instructions
- Visit the local pharmacy to fetch prescriptions
- Refill your loved one’s pillbox
- Offer useful reminders when it is time to take a dose
- Make sure your parent’s medications are securely stored
If your loved one would like to continue managing their medication on their own, we can help with that too. In addition to medication reminders, Comfort Keepers joined forces with Sodexo to provide a selection of safety products that help complement some of our home care services. These highly sought-after products are designed to enable seniors to manage their medications safely and correctly. Your loved one can opt between:
Pill Dispenser – An automated dispenser that provides punctual notifications and distributes correct dosages, managing medication timetables for every day of the week.
Tab Safe – This is a state-of-the-art dispensing system that can be programmed to track every missed dose. Should a senior skip their medication, the unit will make an automated phone call to up to three designated individuals from their contact list.
MedMinder – This device utilizes smart technologies to alert seniors when a dose has been missed by sending notifications via email and text messages. The system will also keep track of all dispensed dosing schedules.
We also offer a service in conjunction with Heart Pharmacy called Heart@Home. Under this program, a Comfort Keeper can pick up your prescription at Heart Pharmacy, deliver it to you and also check back in to ensure you are adhering to your medication schedule.

Contact us today and learn more about how our dedicated caregivers can help your loved one improve their quality of life and remain independent for longer. Feel free to ask for your complimentary in-home assessment where we can visit your parent’s home at a convenient time to discuss your needs in detail and develop a suitable care plan or demonstrate how our products work. We look forward to hearing from you!
