As people age, it is not uncommon for the number of daily medications to increase as well. Studies show 55% of seniors do not take their medications properly – taking the wrong medication, taking more medication than prescribed, taking medication at the wrong time, missing a dose or discontinuing medication early. There are many obstacles seniors face including memory loss, vision problems and difficulty swallowing pills.
Nightingale Nursing has extensive experience in all aspects of medication and pain management. We routinely help seniors organize their medication and are skilled at administering medications through IVs. Nightingale nurses will liaison with doctors and pharmacists to have medication and organized blister packs, understand side effects and be able to explain these to you or your loved ones. Nightingale can also help organize your weekly dosette helping seniors stay on a regular medication schedule. Medication management can be key to having optimal quality of life.
