Talk About Medicine

By Frank Esterle

Americans – young and old – are taking more medication now than ever. Seniors may have trouble taking their medications correctly for a few reasons:

• Confusion surrounding what is prescribed, number of doses, and timing
• Patients that do not perceive their illness to be severe or threatening
• Lack of pharmaceutical help
• Factors impacting medication transitions

If you work with seniors who are planning their future, or if you have an aging loved one, it’s important to know the options available for them to keep their independence and maintain their health.

It’s important to understand how to prepare to age safely wherever you call home.
