How Medication Management Helps With Non-Adherence
Taking medications as prescribed by your doctor is critical in completing the road to recovery. Moreover, taking the correct dosage at the right time ensures you benefit from the medicines’ efficacy. However, it can be challenging to follow through with taking ones’ medications, especially if you need to take more than one.
As a provider of Home Health in Houston, Texas, we’ve encountered clients having such difficulties. And we’ve found that with proper medication management, they are more able to follow through taking their medications appropriately. When they do so, they reduce the risk of their disease or condition getting worse.
Medication management starts with a registered nurse from a reputable Skilled Nursing Facility in Texas visiting you at your home. They then gather all your medication information, listing down the prescribed dosage and how you should take them. The nurse may work with your physician to ensure the medication list is accurate.
After ensuring that everything is in order, the nurse can then make a plan or schedule to help in the proper administration of the necessary medications. Additionally, they may set up reminders ahead. A certified nurse aide can also remind you to take your medications.
We understand how confusing and challenging it is to take your medication accordingly. That is why, as a provider of Elderly Care, we at Allied Home Health offer medication management as one of our services to help with the proper administration of your medicines.
