Medication Reminders

Seniors Helping Seniors® 01 Jul 2024

Caregivers can provide verbal prompts to remind clients to take their medication.

What if they refuse to take their medication when reminded?
Hopefully this won’t happen. If it does, we will document that medication was not taken and communicate this information as appropriate.

Can caregivers instruct which medications to take?
No. Caregivers cannot manage or administer medication. Ordinarily, clients will have someone complete a pill organizer for them, and caregivers will then remind clients to take medication out of the corresponding compartment.

Can caregivers pick up prescriptions from the pharmacy?
Yes. This is considered an errand, not medication administration or management. Caregivers can assist with errands.
