Comfort Keepers In Home Elder Care Helps With Medication Management in Portland, OR
Caregivers can pick-up medications from the pharmacy and ensure your loved one is taking medicine correctly
Some people suffering from chronic illnesses may take multiple medications on a daily basis. Medication management becomes increasingly difficult as a person ages and this is due to a number of factors, which is why medication management is a vital part of in home elder care.
Many seniors choose to move to assisted living facilities solely to get help with medication management. However, the fact is that a large majority of seniors would prefer to stay at home. Not just that, staying at home helps your loved one maintain a sense of independence and improves the overall quality of life. Your loved one may be going through a lot right now - many seniors experience a succession of very stressful events such as major medical events or the loss of individuals that are very close to them - and staying at home with the help of in home elder care could accommodate their grieving and recovery process. The familiarity of one's home goes a long way to keeping our stress levels down.
Of course, there are challenges to staying at home. Not moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility means that your loved one will have to take care of daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, home maintenance and medication management all on their own. Many seniors are not able to meet the demands of daily independent living for a number of reasons including decreased mobility and trouble with memory loss. With in home elder care, your loved one will get just the right amount of help to stay independent and happy and not dependent on anyone.
One of the most important safety aspects of independent living is taking the right medications, in proper doses at the right time. Comfort Keepers offers two medication management options. Your loved one can be reminded to take their medications by a caregiver or can opt for one of our technology solutions such as the SafetyChoice® TabSafe unit, which organizes and dispenses medications with the touch of a button.
What works for your loved one will depend on them and what they are most comfortable with. Both are very safe and viable options and will help keep your loved one independent for a long time to come.
