Medication Hazards with Dementia and Memory Loss
Medication management can be a chore for any of us after a stay in the hospital. For seniors and individuals with dementia, it's a gauntlet of danger requiring a competent, caring overseer.
In this story, you'll see how it's not impossible to make things orderly. But it doesn't happen by accident.
To help dementia patients keep their meds in order, remember:
1. Different medications may have been prescribed by different people.
2. It's always a good idea to build rapport with your local pharmacist, just as you would with your doctor.
3. Either your doctor or pharmacist (or both) can tell you if the medications you're organizing are all necessary.
