Medications can be real lifesavers when taken in the proper doses and at the proper times. This is especially true for prescription medications meant to treat specific symptoms for specific individuals. However, they can turn on you if you take them in the wrong doses, at the wrong times, or don’t take them at all. This is a danger for older adults who may be taking multiple medications and may have memory issues.
If you find yourself or a loved one in a situation where medication schedules are confusing, it’s time to look into some products and services that can keep you on track. The keys to success are organization and reminders. Once you know what needs to be taken when and in what dose, the next step is to make sure you are reminded about those requirements.
Please be assured that Bristol House is taking the coronavirus threat very seriously. For the protection of our patients, staff, and the public, we have adapted the recommended health authority policies that you can read about here: Warning for Visitors | Long Term Care Facility (LTCF) Visitation Guidance. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released information that individuals with who are older and/or have severe chronic medical conditions — such as heart, lung or kidney disease — appear to be at higher risk for more serious COVID-19 illness. They are advising this higher risk population to take heightened precautions: stay home, limit close contact (6 feet, 2 meters) in public places, and avoid crowds. When going to public places, people in this risk category should distance themselves from others who are sick, limit close contact with others, and wash their hands frequently. With all of this being said we are asking that NOBODY visits their loved ones until further notice. We are taking these safety measures to prevent any possible exposure to your loved ones. We appreciate your patience and cooperation at this time. We will keep everyone updated via email, so please keep checking your email for any updates. Please feel free to contact me at (267)-615-3779.
