Medications

Do you have a Senior Loved One? A Senior Loved One can be your grandma, mother, grandpa, dad, aunt, uncle, cousin and/or an elderly friend that you care about. Does your Senior Loved One take any medications? If so, check to see if he/she has a list of their medications written down on an index card or a sheet of paper and stored in their wallet and at home in a safe place.

Let’s look at this scenario, an emergency occurs and your Senior Loved One is taken to the hospital, having easy access to a list of their medications is vital. You don’t have to worry about remembering what medications your Senior Loved One takes or fear that you stated the wrong medication to the ER doctor. At this point, your mind maybe solely on your Senior Loved One’s immediate well-being. Having a list of your Senior Loved One’s medication in their wallet is the way to go. Let’s take it a step further, if your Senior Loved One is allergic to any medications and/or food, this too should be included on this list.

When creating the medication list the following should be listed: Name of your Senior Loved One, illness name, medication for illness, dosage of the medication, how many times the medication is taken, times the medication is taken, name of primary care doctor, list of medications and food allergies, one primary emergency contact including their name, relationship to the Senior Loved One and two telephone numbers.

As the medication change (i.e. dosage, additions, and removals) allergies and/or emergency contact change, the list card should be updated. We have to help our Senior Loved One live life to the fullest. Together, WE can.

Just for you, I have created a Medication List form for you to us as a reference! Please use and share as you wish. Click Medication List Form to download the form.

Thank you.

Hello I hope all is well. For weeks, I have been patiently waiting to find out what new store is going to open in Hudson Mall while walking on Thursdays with the seniors. For a while, the black paint on the windows and lighted ceilings were noticeable. Weeks passed and no more black paint on the windows. To my surprise, the name of the store read Hudson Rehab Spa! I thought to myself this Rehab Spa is going to be a great help to seniors. The ecstatic smile on my face lit as I noticed the rep sitting at the desk. Unfortunately, the door remained locked, so I could not make my visit. I said to myself, maybe next week. A week passed and Hudson Rehab Spa doors opened. At first, I did not see anyone, so I decided to go in to pick up a business card from the desk. As I walked in the clean and open space, a man came behind me. The gentleman said hello and welcome. I replied back with a pleasant good morning and smile. Mike and I began to talk; the discussion of his new Spa and AngelaCARES. I asked Mike the date of his grand opening and he told me it will be on Saturday, June 7, at 3pm. I asked to invite the seniors who were now walking in the Mall and he said yes.
