By age sixty-five, nearly two-thirds of all seniors have two or more chronic conditions requiring prescription medications. By age eighty, 70% of these individuals have several medical conditions requiring medication management. Many get confused or just don’t understand their prescription instructions which can lead to medication errors, sudden hospitalization or even death.
With so many prescriptions being taken by our seniors, safe monitoring of medication is of utmost importance to their wellbeing. Our Medication Management program can ensure safety and peace of mind for you, your family and your physician.
Our Weekly or Bi-Monthly Medication Management Program includes:
RN Visits • Prescription Pick-up/Delivery • Medication Teaching • Pill-Tray Refills
The RN will check for health conditions that might be affected by the medication prescribed; to see that the dosage is correct; when the medication is taken; and for side effects and any possible drug interactions.
