CareBuilders at Home Offers Medication Management Services In Stamford, CT
Most seniors in America take at least one medication a day and many seniors take three or more medications every day. Proper medication management is of paramount importance to your loved one’s well-being. However, if they need to take several pills every day, they can easily mix them up or forget to take them. If you are worried that your loved one will skip their dose, we are here to help. Since our home care services include medication management you will have a peace of mind knowing that your parent is taking their medication as prescribed by their doctor.
We Are Here to Help With Medication Management
Medication mismanagement is one of the main causes of hospital readmissions and can lead to serious health problems. Unfortunately, the more medications a senior takes, the greater the risk of experiencing a medication-related problem. Older adults who suffer from chronic conditions or diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, incontinence, high blood pressure or osteoporosis often require the use of multiple medications. If your parent has several medications to manage daily and cannot remember how and when to take each dose, our caregivers can be of assistance.
Although we cannot administer medications to our clients, our home care providers can be relied upon to make useful reminders for seniors to take their prescribed medications on schedule. Our caregivers can also read labels if your parent’s vision is impaired, thus ensuring your loved one doesn’t take the wrong ones.
They can also count your loved one’s pills every day, keep track of how many they have left and alarm you when the refill is needed. Our caregivers can open medication containers for your parent if needed and refill their pillboxes.
Assistive Medication Management Devices for Your Peace of Mind
CareBuilders at Home is proud to offer the latest technology services which make the lives of our clients more comfortable and safe. We realize how modern devices can help your loved one remain independent in their home and we have done a research to find the best options for you and your parent. If you are worried that our parent will miss their dose when no one is keeping an eye on them, TabSafe is an effective solution for managing medications. When it is time for your parent to take their meds, an alert will remind them to press a button which will cause the medication to dispense into a drawer. Our caregivers can assist with setting up the device and load the medications into cartridges when needed.
