Preventing Medication Errors

Medication Management Services: Over 200 Locations Nationwide | ComForCare  - image-callout-medication-managementAs we age, we tend to take more medications. Aging can also affect the way we process prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs. Because of the number of medications and body changes, older adults are at a higher risk of medication errors including side effects and adverse drug reactions. In addition, cognitive changes can make it difficult for someone to take their medication as prescribed.

Let us help your loved one with medication management services.

Steps Toward Prevention

Medication Management Services: Over 200 Locations Nationwide | ComForCare  - image-resources-reminderThe good news is, many medication errors can be prevented through medication management services. Care coordination between doctors and pharmacists is a good place to start. Calendars and pill boxes can also help you or a loved one stay organized. Some people, however, especially older adults, could benefit from additional help.

That’s where ComForCare Home Care comes in. Trained caregivers can:*
  • Provide medication reminders
  • Ensure medication directions are followed such as taking with food or a certain time of day
  • Check expiration dates
  • Provide transportation to pick up prescriptions and over-the-counter medications or to speak with the pharmacist 

Medication reminders are just one of the many ways ComForCare Home Care can help you or a loved one live their best life possible. 

We also offer special programs for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Individuals with disabilities or those recovering from an illness or surgery can benefit from our services as well.

*Services vary by location. Please contact your local ComForCare Home Care to see what services are available in your area.
