As our parents age, for a number of reasons, they may mismanage their medications. This is evidenced by missed medications, medication errors, or decline in medical conditions, and more. As a result, high rates of hospitalization and re-hospitalization are common. Missed medications, medication errors, and non-compliance often stem from knowledge deficits, physical limitations, lack of access, forgetfulness, or just simply being overwhelmed with so many prescriptions or life, in general. The good news is that there is medication management assistance available to prevent medication mishaps.
This program offers specific and practical tips that can be implemented by adult-children to keep their parents safely in the home and in the community.
