Ensuring Safe and Effective Medication Management at Senior Haven

At Senior Haven, we understand the importance of proper medication management in maintaining the health and well-being of our residents. Our comprehensive medication management services are designed to ensure that each resident receives their medications safely, accurately, and on time, under the supervision of our trained professionals.

Individualized Medication Plans: We recognize that each resident may have unique medication needs based on their health conditions, allergies, and other factors. That’s why we work closely with residents, their families, and healthcare providers to create personalized medication plans tailored to their specific requirements. Our goal is to minimize the risk of medication errors and adverse reactions while optimizing the effectiveness of their treatment regimens.

Trained Medication Staff: Our dedicated team of caregivers undergoes rigorous training in medication management protocols, including medication administration, dosage calculations, side effects monitoring, and medication interactions. They are certified to handle medications safely and are well-equipped to address any questions or concerns that may arise.

Regular Medication Reviews: Medication needs may change over time due to factors such as changes in health status, new diagnoses, or adjustments in treatment plans. That’s why we conduct regular medication reviews to ensure that residents’ medication regimens remain appropriate and effective. Our healthcare team works closely with residents’ physicians and pharmacists to monitor their medications and make any necessary adjustments as needed.

Medication Reminders and Administration: We understand that adhering to medication schedules can be challenging, especially for seniors with multiple medications to take. That’s why we provide medication reminders and assistance with medication administration as needed. Our caregivers ensure that residents take their medications at the prescribed times and in the correct doses, helping to prevent missed doses and medication errors.

Pharmacy Coordination: We maintain close communication with residents’ pharmacies to ensure timely prescription refills, medication deliveries, and coordination of care. Our team works closely with pharmacists to reconcile medication lists, verify dosages, and address any discrepancies or concerns, ensuring that residents have access to the medications they need when they need them.

24-Hour Medication Assistance: Our commitment to medication management extends around the clock. Whether it’s morning, afternoon, or night, our caregivers are available to provide medication assistance whenever it’s needed. Residents can rest assured knowing that their medication needs are always a top priority, ensuring their safety, comfort, and peace of mind.

At Senior Haven, we prioritize the health and well-being of our residents, and that includes ensuring safe and effective medication management. With our personalized medication plans, trained medication staff, regular medication reviews, and 24-hour assistance, residents and their families can trust that their medication needs are in good hands.

While medications are increasingly more effective in improving quality of life, they can also be complicated and intimidating. Organizing a variety of pills and liquids can be overwhelming to someone managing their own meds. That is why highly trained medication technicians, or “med-techs”, are a critical part of Senior Haven RCF’s services.

At Senior Haven, we partner with a local pharmacy with years of seniors housing experience supplying the correct medications on time at all times. With state-of-the-art eMAR technology,  our med techs are able to ensure accurate dosages are given at the prescribed times. Our experienced nurses also work with prescribers to ensure the medications have the desired results.

We always deliver medications with the resident’s authorization, and we monitor administration of meds electronically to ensure no mistakes are made. As you make a decision where your loved one will reside, it is important that the community has a robust medication management program like Senior Haven RCF.
