Elderly in home care services ensure seniors take self-administered medications properly.
Elderly care at home can help with everyday tasks
Many seniors have chronic health conditions that require medication maintain healthy function and lifestyle. There is a growing number of older adults who take more than 5 medications on a daily basis, with some seniors using as many as 20 prescribed medications per day. Memory impairment, physical limitations, and other factors can make taking medications properly a challenge for many seniors. Our services can offer a solution to this problem in the form of medication reminders.
