Modern medicine can work wonders, and there’s no doubt that taking prescribed medication is a large part of proper self-care. Whether your loved one is managing a chronic condition with long-term medication, or
has multiple prescriptions to help with the recovery process after surgery, taking what has been prescribed in the right way, at the right time, in the right amount is critical to healing and good health. But anyone of any age who’s left a pharmacy with an armful of pill bottles knows that following all the instructions to the letter can be tricky and confusing. When pain, weakness or cognitive impairment get in the way, subtleties like ‘take with food’ or ‘take on an empty stomach’ can get lost, and reduce the effectiveness of the drugs. Let a Casa Companion Specialist keep track of the medication for your loved one, so that they can focus on getting better.
