Medication Reminder Tips

medication-reminder-tips

Taking your doctor’s prescription at the proper time is vital, but sometimes it just slips in our minds. This is most common for the elderly, mainly because of their existing health conditions or maybe just comes with age.

As a Home Care in Norristown, Pennsylvania, we prepared some tips to help you remember that it’s time for you to take your meds:

  • Set up an alarm
    One of the effective medication reminders is to set up an alarm. Having your phone beep at the designated time of the day will prompt you to take your pills. Just make sure to set it on repeat to have your phone ring as scheduled.
  • Make a planner
    Most of the time, you will have more than one medicine to take in a day. Have a planner on which pill should be taken before or after breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can print your planner on paper and stick it to your refrigerator or any area which could easily be seen. You can get the help of a home care agency to make your medication planner according to your doctor’s prescription.
  • Regularly check your meds supply
    Another thing to make sure of is your supply so that when it’s time for your meds, you have it ready to take. Pleasant Vine Home Care can help you monitor the stocks of your prescription medication and even pick it up from the pharmacy.

As a Senior Care in Pennsylvania, we can help you ensure that your loved one’s medications are taken as scheduled. To know more about our services, you can contact us at 610-226-2121 or email us at info@pleasantvinehc.com.
