senior with medicine

Did I already take that medication? Uh oh, home care to the rescue.

An excellent option to give your loved one basic supervision, and companionship is to hire an in-home care provider. Your family member's hired home caregiver can assist with important items like managing their medicine, in addition to assisting with daily tasks. Seniors in the US are getting prescribed and taking more medication than ever before. To make sure that your loved one is not abusing or misinterpreting their medications, a Griswold Home Care in-home caregiver can oversee every aspect of their medication intake.

More often than not elderly patients are unaware that they are misusing their prescriptions. It can be challenging for most people to recall whether or when a certain dose was taken and impossible for someone struggling with short-term memory loss. By assisting around the house and making sure everyone is following their regular routine, a home care provider can stop this issue from happening.

Griswold Home Care offers a variety of senior care services, of which medicine reminders are only a small part. Our skilled carers can help with a lot more things. We have been recommending caregivers for more than 40 years to provide various services to the elderly, those with disabilities, and others who are ill or injured.
