For many, healthy living and quality living go hand in hand. Following advice from a medical professional can help prolong good health, and, should it become necessary, taking medications as recommended can help as well. From reducing troublesome symptoms to regulating the body’s proper levels of functioning, there are a variety of reasons to take medications on time and as directed. While this may seem like an easy task, those experiencing inconsistences with memory can have a more difficult time with this essential routine.

As part of a well-rounded selection of in-home care service options, those in need of medication reminders can benefit from having this service as part of their custom care plan. With a caregiver who is privy to the scheduling, dosage and special directions of each medication, the client is able to stay on track with reminders throughout the day or night. Our Aqua Home Care team pairs those in need of in-home care services with trusted caregivers from our registry who compassionately and effectively meet everyday needs, including providing medication reminders.
