Medication Management Services For Seniors
Providing help with medications for seniors is one of the most challenging parts of senior home care. This is because medicines are essential for most elderly to remain healthy or deal with any medical conditions. Usually, seniors tend to have a lot of medical prescriptions to deal with chronic issues, and it can be a challenge to keep up with these. If medication is mismanaged, it can severely hamper their health and may even be dangerous.
Some unsafe situations that can occur are side effects, missed medications, or double dosing. A pill organizer is an option, but it cannot be relied upon without proper surveillance. Look no further than Loving Homecare Inc., where our caregivers provide you with the best home medication management for seniors. We offer a range of services that ensure that your loved ones get their medication safely and on time.

Our Service Offering: Senior Home Medication Management
Seniors are liable to develop more chronic illnesses than any other age group. This is because their immunity and health begin to deteriorate at an old age. As a result, their prescriptions are a lot bigger. Managing such extensive prescriptions can be a challenge, especially for them, which means a medical mishap is very likely to occur. Medication management can help you avoid such risky situations.
These mishaps are made further likely by the fact that the packaging and instructions may be poor. Additionally, the medicines may react to other foods and medicines. Overdosing is also very likely when medicines are not available in pill form. As a result, seniors can face dangerous health effects that can make medication errors potentially fatal. Our caregiver’s medication management ensures such a situation will not occur.

How do you help someone remember their medication?

What is the best medicine reminder?
As such, there is no set-in-stone medicine reminder strategy since each works differently for different people. For example, seniors who are not familiar with technology may not have a good experience with digital medicine reminders. Similarly, some seniors might find in-person reminders annoying, so they may find digital methods better. We make sure to use medicine reminders suitable for your loved ones.

Why Loving Homecare Inc.?
It was such a pleasure to work with Loving Homecare for my Dad's recovery after his stroke. We needed overnight care for him and Loving Homecare was able to find us the most gentle and caring caregivers we could have wished for. Tanner and Leslie were also there to answer and help whenever questions arose. I would not hesitate to call Loving Homecare again to help with my parents.
After several weeks of caring for my husband at home following a severe leg injury that rendered him immobile and unsafe to be left alone for any extended time, I desperately needed help and some respite. I was referred to Loving Homecare, Inc by a very trusted friend who had used them in the past and referred others who were highly satisfied with every aspect of their care and services. Tanner Gish and his team could not have been more responsive and caring.
VETERAN FRIENDLY 🇺🇸 as a Veteran I am skeptical of any business that says they are Military friendly but Loving Homecare lives up to their name.
Years ago I sent a Family Friend, who is a Combat Veteran, to this business. I only heard positive things. Loving Homecare is approved by the VA and I highly encourage any person, Veteran or not, to call and try out their services. Tanner & Orianne are great trustworthy, people.
