Medication is usually an important part that will keep you well.
Our staff are trained to manage medication for people who cannot manage themselves.
All medication that you ask us to manage for you will be assessed and a Medication Record will be drawn up with your involvement so that your carer knows exactly how you take your medicine and why this happens.
Medication can be monitored as follows:
Prompt/Remind you to take your medication
Give you your medication from its packaging at a designated time
Administer your medication completely for you.
Please Note there are things we cannot do. We are not allowed to:
Give Suppositories and Pessaries
Take blood tests including monitoring for diabetes
And any other task that will require a Registered Nurse
