One of the most important aspects of care is mediation reminders and medication management, which is defined as ensuring the clients' prescriptions are being taken with care, at the appropriate time and in the right dosage.
24 Hour Home Care’s caregivers are trained to ensure that you or your loved one’s have taken the proper amount of medication at the appropriate time of day, while actively logging those actions for your medical professional. Our caregivers will ensure that you and your loved ones are safe while taking the medication prescribed to you and that you are not taking medication outside of your prescribed plan. Our caregivers can help you and your family with medication in a number of ways.
How We Can Help with Medication Reminders
Setting up a pillbox or pill organization system to ensure that the management of medication is organized and cohesive. Our caregivers will adhere to the organization system that the client feels comfortable with and that their medical professionals have recommended ensuring that all of the prescribed medications are properly coordinated and sorted before the client takes it.
Logging medication intake daily and each time the client ingests their prescribed medications ensures that the family of the client, as well as their team of medical professionals, have access to a daily log of the prescription drugs that were taken, as well as how it may have affected them such as side effects or how the individual felt after taking them.
Ensuring medication is being taken in the appropriate dosage and at the appropriate time to ensure compliance with the prescribed plan from a doctor. The caregiver is trained to follow the prescribed medication schedule that doctors give, guaranteeing you or your loved ones are following the plan given.
Keeping an eye on the client to watch out for signs of serious medication side effects that can cause the individual to be hospitalized will not only give you or your loved one’s peace of mind that they are in good hands, but the caregiver will serve as a safeguard to ensure the client does not experience adverse drug side effects.
If the client does experience negative side effects or a serious medical emergency, the caregiver will call a medical professional if there is a need for medical attention due to side effects from medications to ensure you or your loved ones are always in good hands!
