Many clients require medications be taken daily and at certain times. Medications sometimes have to be taken with meals or soon thereafter. Some clients may have difficulty managing the task of taking the correct medications at the correct times in the correct dosage.
State law does not permit a caregiver to directly administer medications, but they can assist in making sure that the medications are taken correctly at the correct time. Medication should be set up/dispensed from original container by an RN or a family member. As well as medication reminders, the caregiver can play an important role in reporting changes in the client’s health to the family. This is of vital importance to the well-being of the client.
