Medication adherence means taking your medication as instructed or prescribed by your doctor. This implies that you take the right dosage, at the right time, and in the right way. Why must one go through all these troubles, you ask? Simply put, not taking your medication as prescribed by your doctor or instructed by your pharmacist can worsen your condition.
Many patients do not follow their healthcare provider on how to take their medication for various reasons. Forgetfulness and multiple medication preparations, as well as unpleasant side effects are often cited as reasons for not taking their prescriptions.
Seniors, especially those with serious medical conditions, need reminding to take their medication. When they forget to take them, this could lead to their diseases getting worse and could get them hospitalized. But having someone from a home health agency in Woodbridge, VA can help prevent that from happening.
