In Home Care Providers Offer MedMinder
This easy-to-use system helps seniors manage their medications in State College, PA
Incorrect medication management is a serious concern for all those seniors who depend on pharmaceuticals to maintain their health and keep existing chronic conditions under control. Unfortunately, when older adults have to juggle between 10 and 20 medications per day, medication errors can happen every once in a while. The majority of medication errors are unintentional and they usually occur when seniors are home alone. Though you may be able to help you loved one with their medication, you cannot be there all the time.
If you are having growing concerns about your senior mom or dad’s ability to singlehandedly manage their medication, Comfort Keepers can be of help. As many of our care plans include medication reminders, our committed in home care providers can remind your loved one when to take their pills, read medication labels or pick up medication from the nearby pharmacy.
But as we only offer non-medical services, our professional in home care providers are not authorized to dispense medications. However, we can offer innovative medication management products that can help seniors handle their medication with almost no effort. One such product is MedMinder medication system from SafetyChoice.
This state-of-the-art system is designed to manage even the most complex medication schedules. The device has the capacity to hold 28 medication compartments that can store up to 12 pills each. Although MedMinder resembles an average pillbox, it uses wireless technology to allow for safe and punctual medication management. For safety purposes, MedMinder remains locked until it is time to take a dose. It can be easily programmed and managed online via our secure customer service portal. You can log in at any given time to check up on dispensed medication, rearrange schedules if necessary or see if you loved one skipped their dose.
Should your senior mom or dad forget to take their medication, the system sends an automated audio and visual reminder. This feature makes MedMinder ideal for seniors with low vision or hearing impairments. The system is also set to alert designated individuals such as family members or professional in home care providers that the client skipped their dose.
