The Importance of Medication Management in Home Health Care Services
Proper medication management is perhaps one of the most important components of any senior’s in home care plan, as a failure to manage medication can cause serious illness, hospitalization, emergency room visits and even death. Most seniors who require home health care services are on several medications and are unable to manage these medications on their own. It is estimated that nearly 60% of seniors make some type of mistake when taking their medication. While some of these mistakes are relatively harmless, others can be much more serious.
One of the benefits of having a team of home care specialists available is that they can help in any medication management situation from the simple to the very complex.
