I don’t think my dad has been taking his medications properly. He often gets confused about what to take, when and how much. What can I do to help him?
If you can arrange for your father to visit his physician then you can go with him and use that opportunity to go over his medications with the physician. Once the medications have been identified, your father’s pharmacist can assist you in maintaining the medications. Most pharmacists can make up blister packs or dosettes that give people such as your father one or two weeks worth of medication with the days and times clearly written on them. This will help your father in remembering which medications need to be taken and when.
