At Summer’s Landing of Lynn Haven FL, we know how difficult it can be to transition into a senior care center. We want to provide our residents with everything they need. This includes medication assistance services for seniors. If you are thinking about a senior living center for your parent or loved one, you want to make sure that you are making the best decision possible. We feel strongly that we provide a comfortable, safe, and enjoyable living environment for our residents to live. This includes getting the medication they need to be healthy. We are here to help you learn about the benefits of medication assistance for seniors and the additional services we provide.
What Is Medication Assistance?
Many seniors rely on medications so they can maintain their health and quality of life. Often, seniors may take more than one medication for chronic pain or illness. Remembering to take your medication and at what dosage can be a lot to handle for any person. At our senior living center, we provide medication assistance to help your parent or loved one remember to take their medication and help administer it.
Our long-term care staff will help your parent or loved one with any medications they need to take on a daily or weekly basis. This helps take away all of the worry and stress that come with taking medication. You never have to worry about forgetting to take your medication or taking the wrong amount. Our staff will be here to make sure the medication is administered properly and at the right dosage.
Just as we provide different levels of care within the senior living community, we provide different levels of care for medication assistance services. Some seniors may only need reminders or medication prompts to take their medications. But for those who need additional help with administering medication, we can provide that as well. Additionally, we also can keep records of your medication and communicate with you about any side effects. Above all, we provide a bridge between you and your care provider to help make sure you are getting the best care possible.
Why Do Seniors Need Medication Assistance?
Providing medication assistance is a necessity when a person needs assisted living services. Managing medicine and medication is an ongoing process. As our patients grow and change, they will likely need adjustments to their medicine and dosage. Medication assistance is important for reasons such as:
- Memory problems or dementia make it difficult to stick to the dosage or schedule of the medication.
- Certain vision or hearing problems can make it difficult to comprehend prescription instructions or take medication safely.
- Many chronic conditions require multi-step plans for care management.
- Seniors often have prescriptions from multiple different doctors. This can make it hard to monitor the side effects of the medication.
- The cost of medication is extremely high for individuals who are no longer in the workforce.
At Summer’s Landing, our goal is to take the pressure off of you. This is why we offer a variety of different options to reduce the risk of any error and to give your parent or loved one the support they need.
