Let Other People Help
There are MANY pharmacies that are more than willing to make your life easier in managing a loved-one’s meds. If you are not already doing this, make sure you are filling all of your meds at the same pharmacy. This way, when you have a question on what meds or doses your mom is taking, it’s a phone call away.
The other benefit that many now offer is delivery. Use this to your advantage. If you are using a nurse or other designated caregiver to set up the meds, have the pharmacy deliver on a timeline that works for when the administrator will be at the home next!
Keep a current list of your mom’s meds on your phone in a cloud based app. This also allows you to always have access to the list. No more of the ‘I forgot the list at the house’ challenge!
Medications are complicated enough. Do not add to your frustration of having multiple pharmacy’s fill your prescriptions.
