Learn more about the tips and tricks of elderly health care experts Comfort Keepers of Anchorage, AK regarding medication safety
Many seniors take multiple prescription medications. In fact, it’s common for our elderly loved ones to receive prescriptions from multiple doctors. These factors make it difficult to keep track of the medications, and many seniors sometimes make costly mistakes.
Elderly health care professionals warn that missed or duplicated doses of medication can result in hospitalization, and possibly death. Even the sharpest and most independent seniors can make occasional mistakes.
To fight against this, Comfort Keepers elderly health care services assist your senior family member to manage their medications. While our caregivers don’t actually dispense medication, they can help your loved one by reading prescription labels and by providing reminders to your loved one.
