Safety Medication Management in Seniors

safety-medication-management-in-seniors

Seniors are at risk of contracting chronic illnesses due to their old age and weakened immune systems. To manage their health conditions, they often take several medications per day. However, they are susceptible to medication errors due to memory problems or confusion as to what medications to take. That is why medication management is important to prevent any adverse drug effects on their bodies and ensure their continued recovery.

Here are some tips for safe medication and improving their compliance:

  • Maintain a list of their medications, including the doses and time of intake.
  • Gather all medications in one place that is easily accessible and store these properly.
  • To prevent confusion, organize their medications in pill boxes.
  • Do not forget to refill their medications in advance. It is helpful to maintain one pharmacy to monitor your senior’s medications and check for any drug effects.
