Ways on Motivating Seniors to Take Their Prescriptions and Its Benefits


The major reason people take medicine is to improve their quality of life. However, if you are ill or taking numerous drugs, it might be difficult for you to remember to take the appropriate pills at the right times. When medicines are not taken appropriately, quality of life does not improve and, in many situations, worsens. To avoid such instances, caregivers from a reputable home care service provider in Hawaii can assist your seniors in taking their prescriptions religiously.

There are several methods to motivate your elders to take their prescriptions as directed. Find methods to remind your elders about the importance of medication adherence and assist them in visualizing the benefits of success. A photo of your family next to their prescription would also be a motivator. Keep a journal of your elders’ progress, utilize sticker charts, and reward them when they finish their medications. Helping Hands Health Care also recommends that your seniors take their medicine at the same time every day. You might be able to allow them to mix taking the medicine with other regular, everyday activities that are already part of their routine.

Prescriptions should be taken seriously and consistently to enhance your senior’s overall health. Better outcomes are predicted for older individuals who take their medicine as directed. Less worry for patients and their families. Less money is spent on associated healthcare expenditures such as ER visits and hospital stays. Reduced diseases and fatalities are also a result of medication compliance.

If you are busy with errands and your job, you could ask a healthcare service provider in Hawaii to attend to your seniors’ needs.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Healthcare is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
