What Are Medication Management Services?

Medication management services are designed to help individuals who may have difficulty managing their medications on their own. This can be especially helpful for elderly individuals who may take multiple medications at different times throughout the day.

Medication management involves:

  • Providing medication reminders – This can be in the form of alarms, phone calls, or even setting up a pill organizer.
  • Monitoring for potential drug interactions and side effects – Some medications can interact with others or cause side effects, which can be harmful for elderly individuals.
  • Managing refills and deliveries – A medication management specialist can coordinate with pharmacies to ensure that medications are refilled on time and delivered to the client’s home.
  • Working closely with healthcare providers to ensure proper administration – Talking with healthcare providers and ensuring that medications are being taken as prescribed is an important aspect of medication management.
  • Promoting medication adherence – Taking medications as prescribed can help clients avoid complications.

Safety is a major concern when it comes to medication management for elderly individuals. Some may forget to take their medication or accidentally take the wrong dose, which can have serious consequences. Medication management specialists ensure that all medications are taken correctly and on time, promoting the health and safety of their clients.

Signs That Your Parent May Need Medication Management Services

While every individual is different, there are some common signs that may indicate your parent needs medication management services. These can include:

  • Difficulty remembering to take medications
  • Confusion or forgetfulness related to their medication regimen
  • Multiple trips to the emergency room for medication-related issues
  • Changes in behavior or mood, potentially due to incorrect dosage or missed doses
  • Difficulty managing multiple medications and their schedules
  • Need for assistance with organizing or administering medication
  • Resistance or refusal to take necessary medications

If you notice any of these signs in your parent, it may be time to consider medication management services. Even if your parent is currently managing their medications well, it can be beneficial to have a professional oversee and assist with the process.

Medication management services can be part of overall in-home health services. If your parent is in need of skilled nursing or therapy services, medication management can be integrated into their care plan.
