larger_Pills_on_counter_3.jpgMedication management is an increasingly important topic for home caregivers. Many seniors are prescribed multiple medications, many of which are to be taken on different schedules. In addition to scheduling issues, home caregivers need to be aware of storage concerns, tracking expiration dates, interactions between different medications, and many other potential issues.

It’s a great deal to take in – which is why home caregivers and seniors need to be aware of an upcoming Family Caregiver Support webinar scheduled for March 2, 2016.  The title of that webinar is “Seniors and Medication Management.”

The Webinar

This latest in the ongoing series of Family Caregiver Support webinars will begin at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time (12:00 noon Central, 1:00 p.m. Eastern) on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.

Home Instead, Inc. has conducted research which demonstrates that when the number of prescription medicines taken by a person 70 years of age or up increases, so do potential health risks. Learning how to recognize potential issues, pinpoint potential threats, and take steps to manage this situation is crucial.

  • Home caregivers who attend this online webinar can leave the session being able to:​​
  • Nam​​​e three or more medication-related risks for seniors – as well as potential solutions for these risks
  • Know how to strengthen the role of the family in reducing the potential for medication-related risks
  • Feel more confident about seniors being safe at home

The Speaker

Lakelyn Hogan is currently working toward a Master of Arts in Social Gerontology. Lakelyn’s passion for helping others has led her to work with aging adults and their families as they navigate the senior care continuum.

Even if medication management is not currently an issue, home caregivers may benefit in the future from participating in this webinar. Those in long term caregiving situations may find that prescribed medications will increase as time passes.
