Comfort Keepers helps seniors safely manage their medications in State College, PA
The majority of US seniors over 65 have to take multiple medications each day just to control their chronic conditions and maintain their health. While many of them are able to keep track of their medication schedules most of the time, medication errors can happen unintentionally. If you have noticed your senior mom or dad is having difficulties with their medication timetables, Comfort Keepers can offer viable solutions.
Our quality living assistance services in State College, PA, include medication reminders. A professional caregiver can remind your loved one when to take their pills, read medication labels or visit the local pharmacy to renew your parent’s medication supply. As we only provide non-medical care, our care professionals are not authorized to administer medications.
However, Comfort Keepers living assistance services do offer a number of sophisticated medication management systems. SafetyChoice TabSafe is among our best-selling products. This affordable, efficient device can help your senior mom or dad manage their medications almost effortlessly. It is designed to manage even the most complex dosing schedules. As TabSafe is very easy to use, prior experience with similar devices is not required.
TabSafe medication system utilizes an existing landline or cellular network to connect with our SafetyChoice Monitoring Station. If your senior mom or dad fails to take their medication on time, the system will automatically call up to three different numbers from your parent’s contact list. In the event the contacts are non-responsive, the device is programmed to alert the staff at the monitoring station, which is available around the clock, seven days a week. The station’s emergency operators will then immediately call your loved one and notify their family members or professional living assistance services.
The system has four re-filling medication cartridges, with each cartridge holding 16 or 32 interchangeable doses. The unit features a large dispensing button, which is easy to see and feel. TabSafe features audio and visual alarms to alert your loved one if they happen to miss their dose. Additionally, the system also provides notifications when it needs to be re-filled. In case of a power outage, the device is equipped with a battery that can last up to 24 hours without recharging.
