The Importance of Medication Management for Seniors

If you help care for an aging loved one, or are advancing in age yourself, you may have heard of the importance of medication management. As people age, they can develop multiple chronic conditions, which may require several prescription drugs from more than one prescriber. With this situation, there comes an increased risk of drug interactions, side effects, and accidentally missing or doubling doses.

Medication Management Tips

Comprehensive medication management is no small task, and many people decide to hire professional medication management services. However, if you want to try helping a loved one, such as a parent, to manage his or her medicines, here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Share this list with your parent’s primary care physician and pharmacist. Ask if they see any potential issues.
  • Try medication management systems, such as a pill dispenser or pill reminders.
  • Store medications properly in a cool, dry place.
  • When a new medication is introduced, keep a journal of changes in mood or behavior in order to monitor for potential side effects.
