Senior Medication Management & Supervision

DO YOU HAVE SEVERAL PRESCRIPTIONS?

Too many medications? ElderCare can help. Don't be intimidated about taking your medications! At ElderCare we understand that knowing when to take medications, how to take medications, and simply remembering to take them can be difficult for may seniors.

Our Social Worker and the RN review all meds when beginning with a new client/patient unless the family states otherwise. We have a signed release to give us permission. Each patient has a med sheet with the name of the med, type of med, dosage, time, and doctor. In addition, copies of prescriptions and their side effects are included.

Meds are taken within the guidelines of the physician and the pharmacists, under the supervision of our trained professionals.
  • With or without food
  • Before bed
  • With what type of liquid
  • For what medical condition

ARE YOU CONFUSED ABOUT DRUG INTERACTIONS?

Drugs can be difficult to supervise as the elderly use more than one drug store for better pricing. Each patient's list is approved by the physician and the druggist to ensure there are no drug or usage interactions. Meds are coordinated with meal planning. Our RN reviews each drug list monthly or as needed.
