Keeping track of your medications can be challenging, particularly when you are taking multiple medications. Appropriate medication management could be crucial to your ongoing health and wellbeing plus your ability to remain living confidently and independently in your own home.
ECH can provide qualified staff to assess your medication needs, develop plans to assist you in administering your medication, or assist or support you in taking your medications. There are also services and assistive technology that can make your medication management easier for you such as automatic medication dispensers and electronic medication reminders, if you would rather self-administer your own medication.
ECH is available to support you to continue your medications at home by regularly reviewing your situation. Together with your GP, pharmacist and your other health professionals, ECH can work with you in keeping track of your medication routine and can also identify where any adjustments might be made to further support your wellbeing.
The administration and management of your medication is a serious responsibility and only registered nurses, enrolled nurses or a medication competent employee may undertake the role of medication management.
No matter your age or medical circumstances, ECH nursing staff and medication competent team members are available to you on a competitive fee for service basis. If you are aged 65 years and over, you may qualify for a Home Care Package (HCP).
Contact us today to learn more about managing your medication at home with the support of ECH.
