Those seniors with more complex conditions may take 12-15 medications. Typically, these medications are prescribed by multiple physicians. Many times there is little or no coordination between these practitioners.
It is well documented that many maladies affecting seniors are mis-diagnosed as illness or disease, when in reality it is a result of the combination of multiple medications. Our care managers work with the client’s physicians to monitor what they are taking and how they are taking it – this can result in significant improvement in physical and mental health.
Your Advocare Care Manager serves as the professional liaison to ensure coordinated medication management for the elderly client.
