Medication Reminder Services
Medication Reminder services include simple reminders to assure your loved one is taking their medications on time and then documenting the service upon completion. Missing a pill or two could be a serious or life-threatening situation. Our medication reminder service helps you remember when to take your pills to help keep you healthier. A medication reminder can help keep on track and eliminate the possibility of simple forgetfulness.
Medication non-compliance has become a bigger issue recently and can cause unnecessary emergency hospitalizations. A medication reminder can help reduce
- taking too few pills
- taking too many pills
- taking your dose of pills too far apart
- taking your dose of pills too close together
- forgetting to take any dose of pills.
Any of these issues could cause strokes, seizures, slips, falls, overdosing, under-dosing, heart attack, sleepiness/drowsiness, or other health risks. Just having a simple medication reminder can be the difference between healthiness or a hospital visit.
Studies show that 125,000 deaths and up to 25% of the hospital and nursing home admissions annually can be traced to patients straying from their medication schedule. A prescription medication reminder can reduce the possibility of missing or forgetting to take pills or other types of medicine.
