Many seniors use a significant number of medications. Sometimes it can be frustrating to manage them all. Different doses and medications at various times of the day can become confusing. With a bit of medication assistance, though, you can reduce the risk of using the wrong medications or missing a dose. That’s where our team comes in. At Summer’s Landing, we offer medication assistance services to make the entire process a bit easier for you.
What to Know About Your Medications
There are a few key concerns to pay attention to when it comes to senior medication. Most seniors face a few complications that can make things difficult such as:
- When to take medications
- Dividing medications if a half dose is required
- Recognizing different medications from each other
- Taking medications numerous times of the day
- Taking different medications several times a week
In addition to this, it is very easy to take too many medications or too few if you get mixed up on the time of day. Sometimes, it is even possible to forget if you took the day’s dose. All of this puts your health on the line, especially if you are taking sensitive medications requiring very specific use. Medication assistance services can make this a bit easier for you.
How Medication Assistance Can Keep You Safe
There are a number of ways our team at Summer’s Landing can help you with your medications. For example, we can make sure you have all of the medications you need on time for each dose, even if you need to take numerous doses throughout the day. We also can handle ensuring all of your medications are available to you at your assisted living community home. That means you do not have to worry about things like refilling your medications on your own.
In addition to this, there are fewer risks with taking too much or too little of the drugs you need. By taking all of these steps, it is possible to optimize the level of care and support those medications have for you. That means your health conditions are better managed, and complications are minimized. We can also update and change medications with you according to the recommendations of your doctors. That means we can help ensure you are getting the best medications for your specific needs.
