The elderly, especially those who have experienced an injury or illness, are often prescribed multiple medications. It can be hard to keep track of which medication to take when and to remember to take them. This issue is particularly acute for people suffering from memory loss.

Taking the wrong medication, the wrong dosage or skipping pills entirely can have adverse effects on health. In order to prevent mishaps, Towne Home Care’s home health aides assist their clients by providing them with friendly medication reminders.

The Challenges of Medication Management

Medication management can be difficult for seniors. They are often prescribed a long list of medications and each one comes with different instructions for dose and frequency. The pills of various medicines may look the same, and even when they don’t, it can be difficult to remember which pill is pink and which is blue. Ironically, patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s are prescribed a long list of medications despite the fact that their cognitive skills have deteriorated.

Towne Home Care’s home health aides are trained to help with medication management. They remind their clients when it’s time to take medicine and make sure that only the right pills are being taken. We also offer a service where a traveling nurse refills prescriptions and arranges them properly for the client or aide.

Our aides are trained to detect changes in health in their clients. If a medication is having unwanted side effects or if the senior has a hard time swallowing it, the aide will let you know about the problem immediately. Many lives have been saved by the vigilance of an aide.

Peace of Mind for You

Having a Towne home health aide in your loved one’s home grants you the luxury of peace of mind when you can’t be there. Our medication reminder service ensures that all medicine is being taken at the right time and in the right dose. When you spend time with your loved one, you can focus on enjoying their company instead of worrying about technical details.

Testimonials

When we needed a home-care nurse for my mother, a Towne nurse arrived at the house within hours. The prompt, wonderful service and level of personal care surpasses anything I could have expected, and while I hope to never need nursing care again, I’m so glad to know Towne Nursing is there when I need you.

Your aide, Emmanuel, was my husband’s salvation. He can be cantankerous, and Emmanuel was able to diffuse his tension and get him to laugh. I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Emmanuel, who made things so much better for my husband. He is an asset to your company.
Paula D.
My brother and I rate your company with the highest of praise. You provided kind, compassionate, excellent care for our parents at the end of their days. Joel [Director of Operations] – you, your wife, and your staff are personable and professional. You never failed to deliver excellence and when it came to a financial hurdle, you put our minds at rest right away. Your nurse Reggie took care of my father with loving caring, and we will always be grateful. Reggie and the rest of your staff deserve every penny of their salaries, and then some!

I cannot recommend my mother’s aide, Rita, highly enough. She was kind, attentive and nurturing, and cared for my mother with the devotion of a daughter.
Barbara S.
Towne Nursing put our minds at ease when we were reluctant to hire a live-in aide. Yaa, your staffer who arrived at our house, was amazing at handling my mother. She took care of all her needs, day or night, from cooking meals to healing bed sores. Her laughter was contagious and her level of care for Mom unsurpassed. She became a member of the family and we will miss her.

Thank you to Towne Nursing. We feel blessed to have had your aide, Akua, provide loving care to our parents – my mother with Alzheimer’s and my father’s acute health care needs (including taking full charge of Mom while Dad had a medical emergency that took him back to the hospital). And when he returned home, Akau was the only one guaranteed to get him to eat a full meal. She helped him regain strength, and cared for him round the clock after his subsequent surgery. We remain eternally grateful for her role in nursing my father back to health. We recommend Akua – there’s none better.
Patricia B.
Your home health care aide, Naomi, is an absolute blessing! She took care of all of Mom’s physical, emotional and social needs, and went above and beyond her expected responsibilities to cooking nutritious meals and scrubbing the bathroom. Naomi became family; I would not hesitate to recommend her.
Ronnie L.
Akua has taken careful care of my mother for the past seven months, a particular challenge due to my mother’s high fall risk. Akua has been an honest and competent companion, keeping my mother freshly dressed in addition to cleaning her apartment. She also checks in with me daily, which is exactly what I need as a daughter.
