Pill cases and written medication schedules can help seniors remember when to take their pills to a degree, but for some patients they're not enough.
Seniors use more prescription medicines and over-the-counter drugs than any other age group. Their medication schedules can be complicated and hard to keep straight. If the person's memory is slowing down with age, the challenge is even greater.
Our caregivers provide reminders to make sure that medication is taken in the proper dosage and when needed.
By Florida law, our professional caregivers cannot administer medications which includes but not limited to injections, force feeding, IV therapy, and suppositories. It is required to be a license nurse to perform this type of duty.
