Memory loss is a common condition among seniors, but that does not make it any less dangerous. Seniors who live alone and suffer from memory loss continuously encounter many problems, especially with medication management.
This can lead to underdosing or overdosing on medicines resulting in feeling unwell and even trips to the emergency room. That is why medication management is a priority of every Home Health Agency in Van Nuys, California.
At Americare Home Health, Inc. we provide skilled nursing care which focuses on managing the medications of patients.
Upon the recommendation of physicians, nurses and caregivers carry out the following:
- Developing and implementing a system for labeling and organizing medicines, so it is easy for everyone in the household to provide medication, as needed.
- Ensuring the patient takes the right medications at the right times and is paired with the proper meal plan to promote maximum health and well-being.
- Coordinating with the patient’s various doctors, to ensure their medication regimes complement each other and are always up to date.
