Medication Management

Are you taking your medication on time?

 Medication routines can become increasingly complex. It is essential that a regular and accurate schedule is followed. Our trained and experienced caregivers can help. While iAID Caregivers are unable to assist with administering any medications they are able to help remind a parent when it is time to take their medications.  Assistance can also be given with reading labels and opening of containers.  Trips to the pharmacy and pick ups can also be coordinated.

iAID Medication Management Program

 iAID's Medication Management Program provides guidance on proper medication management for the elderly. Understanding the medication, having complete medical records, monitoring when clients/patients take their medication and carefully following instructions are all important components of the iAID healthy medication management program.

Misuse of any type of medication, especially those prescribed for treatment of chronic diseases can be dangerous and may ultimately lead to death.  Improper medication management is most commonly evident among seniors and especially Alzheimer's / Dementia patients.  Due to the unfortunate psychological alterations such conditions may cause,  individuals tend to overdose, skip doses, take the wrong medications and at times may even forget to their pills.
