Memory loss and forgetfulness often come as a normal part of aging, making it hard for seniors to manage their own medications. It usually becomes a younger family member’s responsibility to help their beloved senior out. At Helping Hands Hale, we offer medication management as part of our home care services for seniors.
Our goal as a home care service provider in Hawaii is to make sure our clients take the right medicines at the correct times each and every day in order to prevent incidents of underdosing or overdosing. These mistakes may lead to serious health repercussions that may even require hospitalization.
Through medication reminders, by personally dispensing medicines, and by ensuring seniors take them correctly, we seek to promote their long-term health and wellness. We can also watch out for possible adverse interactions between food, drinks, and medicines a senior takes regularly.
There are many strategies when it comes to managing senior medications. These include relabelling and reorganizing medicines for easy dispensing, printing out an extensive schedule of the client’s medication schedule, and more.
Moreover, we teach family members how to follow their senior loved one’s medication regimen and dispensing system in cases where the caregiver is not with them, for example, when you are traveling with seniors.
As a leading healthcare service provider in Hawaii, daily medication management is only one of the many senior care services we provide our clients. You can call us today at 808-747-2273 to learn more about how we can help you.
