When one becomes more medically involved, medications can become quite complicated! Missed doses, forgetting if you took the dose, drug interactions, and different doses on different days, can all cause problems, as can medication interactions and side affects.
ELDER ACHIEVERS can help with this! They can assist you in the self administration of your meds, by providing proper documentation, and organization to prevent double doses, missed doses, wrong time, wrong med, etc.
It’s important to note that ELDER ACHIEVERS associates do not dispense medication. They can support you by adding management and documentation, but they only provide assistance for the Self Administering of Medications. Therefore, you need to know what it is that you are taking. If you’re unable to do this, then a nurse needs to be involved.
Assistance for Medication Self Administration includes:
- Monitoring schedules
- Watching for side effects
- Ensuring proper storage
- Keeping accurate records
- Helping to prepare the medications for self administration- The right dose, at the right time, on the right day, for the right person
