Medication Reminders

Seniors are faced with the reality of taking multiple medications daily, and it’s not always easy to follow the doctor-prescribed schedule. For the elderly, forgetting to take medication is a common concern. But it shouldn’t be a point of stress! Having someone assist you or your loved one with medication reminders allows for maintaining health and wellness, which is our goal. Merciful Homecare Services can assist with medication reminders and management, as well as prescription pick-up.

Elder Care Services Include Medication Reminders for Seniors.

Medication management for the elderly is not just about taking medication. Our caregivers are ready to:

Help Set Up Medication Reminders
Remembering to take your medication is difficult for many people, but even more so for the elderly. It’s just one more thing to keep track of, and it can be confusing and frustrating. Our elderly care services include keeping track of which medication, how many, and when to take them. In-home caregivers can help you or your loved one remember to take the right medications, at the right time, in the right dosage.

Help with Medication Management
Medication reminders for seniors are a vitally important task. Our in-home caregivers can assist in making that task more manageable. Taking multiple medications, on different days and at different times, with or without meals, can lead to missed refills and so much more. Our home care assistance includes helping seniors organize the medications so that it is easier to remember what time to take each one as well as how to take it. They can track when a refill is needed and even make the request and pick them up, if needed. Our in-home caregivers can create a checklist, assist with medications that have been pre-selected by you or your loved one, a nurse, family doctor, or a pharmacist, and set weekly or monthly reminders depending on individual needs.

Help Seniors with Prescription Pickup
Seniors who have health or mobility issues cannot easily get to a pharmacy to pick up the medications they need. Our in-home caregivers can assist in facilitating medication pickup and drop off.
