Indianapolis assisted livingSelf-administering medications can be daunting, especially for seniors who take a handful of pills daily. On average, seniors consume more than one-third of prescription drugs used in the U.S. “Those aged 65 to 69 take an average of 15 prescriptions per year, while those from 80 to 84 take an average of 18,” according to the American Association of Consultant Pharmacists.

While the benefits of modern medicine are impressive and effective, there are potential health hazards. Toxicity and adverse drug interactions are of concern for those taking multiple medications, particularly in seniors that often take multiple prescription and over-the-counter medicines daily.

Each year a third of emergency room visits by older adults are caused by adverse drug events, according to a white paper from the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living. “32,000 seniors suffer hip fractures caused by medication-related problems. It’s simple: They are overmedicated, feel dizzy when they stand up, and fall. Or worse, get behind the wheel of a car,” says HuffPost.

Perhaps Mom or Dad forgot if they had already taken their medicine and double-dosed or missed doses, leading to an aggravation of their chronic condition. Incidents similar to these, involving medication, are often the deciding factor when transitioning loved ones into Assisted Living.

Are you are considering moving yourself or a loved one into senior living for assistance managing medications? Our certified staff facilitates in documenting, dispensing, and administering medications to ensure both the care and safety of residents.

Our Indianapolis Prescription Assistance Program for Seniors includes:

  • Documenting current medications, as well as medical background and history
  • Providing a comprehensive knowledge of each prescription, dosage, and effects
  • Scheduling pill reminders for residents (time of day, dosage, and special instruction)
  • Regularly checking all medications and expiration dates
  • Ensuring all medications are stored properly
  • Ordering resident refill prescriptions, as prescribed by a physician

    da decenni su progetti di dimensioni di un certo rilievo, per motivi di serietà professionale e di responsabilità (dovendo cercare di difendere il posto di lavoro), cerco proprio di non farlo capitare.Poi certo si può sempre sbagliare ci mancherebbe altro!Basta però che lo si riconosca e, nei limiti delle possibilità, si ponga rimedio.Credo in particolare che non sia proficuo occultare i fatti invocando interpretazioni filosofiche o dietrologiche come paraventi neanche fosse sempre una questione di dogma di fede.
