Medication management for seniors is a very serious topic for us at Kentish Homecare. In order to ensure that you are treated in the right way during your time with us, we make it a priority that every member of staff is trained so that they work closely with your doctor. This way, they know for certain what medicines you need and on what basis. You don’t have to worry about keeping track of multiple tablets and getting confused, because our carers will be on-hand to assist you.
How the management works
When it comes to home care, medication is vital because it is one of the main ways in which a person is able to either recover or make it through the day. With medication management for seniors, we have found that they often have to take quite a few medications in one day and that this can get quite puzzling for them as they struggle to keep up with exactly which ones to take and at one time. A lot of the time, they feel like their entire day is based around remembering to take pills instead of living.
In order to tackle this problem, our staff will make sure that they are able to set up a schedule in which you can easily abide by, whilst also being able to enjoy your free time as well. Because they are in contact with your doctor, the carers will be able to label everything clearly for you, telling you which one to take and at what time. This way, you can concentrate on enjoying your life.
Making sure everything is in place
As you can see, we take the medication management for seniors very seriously and aim to help those in our care in the best way we can. There is no better way for our carers to assure they are doing this right than by working closely with the patient’s doctor and this exactly the service we provide.
