REMINDING PATIENTS TO TAKE MEDICATION
One of the most important duties that a Competent Care caregiver can provide, is monitoring a patient’s medication and reminding Patients to Take their Medication. While the caregivers from Competent Care can not administer medication, they can remind patients when they need to take their medication, as well as monitor that the patient is in fact taking the medicine. Caregivers can also help patients with opening medicine containers and with reading labels and doses. A Competent Care caregiver can keep medication away from patients if the patient is unable to monitor their medication properly. Having a Competent Care caregiver to manage medication, will also help to make sure prescriptions are refilled on time.
