Many seniors take several prescription medications. In fact, it’s common for our older relatives to receive prescriptions from multiple doctors. With so many things besides medications to manage, many seniors struggle to keep up.
Missed or duplicated doses of medication can result in hospitalization, and possibly death. Even the sharpest and most independent seniors can run into trouble with medication.
One of the many services that Comfort Keepers senior care services offers is assisting your senior family member in managing medications. Our senior care services don’t actually include dispensing medication, but they help drastically by reading prescription labels and supplying reminders to your loved one.
