Medications are essential for the care of seniors. When used appropriately, medications are effective treatments for acute and chronic conditions. Pain relievers, for example, help a person with arthritis to button his shirt, or a woman to feed herself.
The benefits of medications invite potential hazards like toxicity, adverse drug reactions, interactions, other adverse reactions.
Yet, a great number of assisted living residents depend upon medications for treating short-term and chronic illnesses. 85% of the residents require assistance with management of their meds.
The medicines dramatically improve a resident’s quality of life.
If you have a loved one in assisted care, you know that these seemingly little things can go a long way in preserving dignity and independence. On the flip side, if medicines are not taken as directed, there are serious consequences.
