We also provide specialized Alzheimer’s & Demential Care Services.
Often seniors are on a number of medications that need to be taken at specific intervals. Our registered nurse will evaluate these medications and provide guidance to your in-home caregiver on medication administration and scheduling.
We’ll ensure that your senior takes all medication in the correct dosages and at the times prescribed.
When our caregivers are helping your senior, you won’t need to worry about whether your parent has forgotten to take medication or has inadvertently taken it twice.
