As we age, there are an increasing number of chronic health problems that we may become susceptible to. In addition to more senior-specific chronic issues like Alzheimer's disease and dementia, other conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes can create ongoing health risks. For this reason, medication can play a significant role in proper senior care. Unfortunately, many older adults may have difficulty adhering to prescribed medication schedules. As caregivers, it's essential that seniors follow their medication directions as closely as possible to best treat existing conditions, as well as preventing additional complications.
