Medication Assistance

As we grow older or if we have a lifelong condition, dealing with medication can become quite worrying, particularly if we have a disease or illness which is progressive, or we are confused, or we forget, or we just don’t know what all this medication is for.

You could develop swallowing difficulties and may need medicines in different forms, we may have to adapt foods, (such as thickening liquids and mashing solids so that you can consume them). You may develop short or long-term difficulties and we need to notify the appropriate health professionals.

Do you have controlled drugs? What happens when you forget to take them? What happens if you take too many? Who's going to find out? Is there anybody that can help? Perhaps you are confused and always forget to take the drugs or you're not sure when to take them. 

These are dilemmas that many people face and ones that can be dangerous.

We can discuss with you how best to help you; we can do assessments and make sure that we put the correct procedures in place.

We can help to make sure that you're safe!

We keep it simple for you

Caring Crew can provide a service. We're not going to take over your life, we're going to sit with you, and perhaps your family, talk about your independence and what you are comfortable in doing yourself and talk about any support you would like with your medicines and drugs.

We will write what we agree in your plan of care and if you want us to manage your medicines and drugs, we'll prepare written records of all of your drugs on a chart and when we give them to you we will record it, when you don't want to take them we will note why, so we can all see a full record of what's been prescribed and what's been taken.

If you believe we can help, need information or assistance, please call 01733 264113 complete the online enquiry form. We can give advice on the phone or we can make a no-obligation visit to see if we can help.
