As adults age, they inevitably begin to experience varying degrees of memory problems, making it hard for them to do things like manage their own medications. It doesn’t help that seniors have increasingly complicated medication regimens, too.
At Jones Health Care Services, we provide dementia care services to address this problem.
Our personal care professionals coordinate with the client’s physicians, to keep their medication routine updated at all times. They take care of buying medicines, refilling prescriptions, and keeping track of expiration dates. They also develop an efficient system for organizing and dispensing these medicines.
Our professional caregivers ensure that patients take the right medications at the right times, each and every day, to prevent incidents of overdosing and underdosing. They also make sure that the client’s meal plan and medication regimen work well together, to prevent allergic reactions and other unwanted interactions.
Taking the wrong medications can lead to clients feeling unwell or even requiring a trip to the emergency room. That is why medication management is a cornerstone of the services we provide as part of 24 hr care services.
