Medication Management

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

Meal Planning & Preparation

SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS

Do you or your loved one find it difficult to adhere to doctor's and medication guidelines when it comes to nutritious meal planning? Do you have special dietary needs?

  • Diabetic

  • Sodium free

  • Hypoglycemic

  • Gluten-free


The elderly need nutritious well-balanced meals. Flexible, state-licensed home care services are available temporarily or permanently, part-time or around-the-clock, live-in or live out so you can rest assured you or your loved one is getting the required daily nutrition. Meal planning and preparation according to your individual dietary needs ensure there are no interactions with the prescribed medications.



NUTRITIOUS MEAL PLANNING
Is nutritious meal planning a challenge? Creating an appropriate meal plan encourages an appetite leading to the enjoyment of three nutritious meals a day. We use the recommended food pyramid as a healthy guide to meal planning. We'll even do the grocery shopping. Your shelves will be replenished with the foods and products you are accustomed to using and eating. These include:

  • Fruits and vegetables

  • Dairy Products

  • Whole Grains

  • Fish and poultry


In addition, we ensure that medication is taken at the designated time, with or without food, as prescribed by the doctor and adhere to all Florida Regulations regarding administration and procedures of drugs and medications.

MEAL PREPARATION

Meal preparation can be difficult for the elderly. We prepare meals and make sure food is ready at mealtime or for easy consumption later. In addition, we ensure you get the proper fluids (6 glasses of water daily) and engage in daily physical activity. Does your doctor recommend a walk after each meal? We'll accompany you. You're never alone with ElderCare.
