Some people do not adhere to their prescriptions. The factors that affect their ways include forgetfulness, lack of budget, distrust, and disbelief in treatment outcomes. Others like to take medications according to their liking. And if they continue doing this, there is a high chance of not getting better.
Sadly, many of these people are seniors. Without proper management from a home care aide or Resident Care in Washington, they tend to have these errors:
- Taking two different medicines with the same active ingredient may put them at risk of overdosage.
- Skipping or stopping treatment, making them ineffective. The elderly may have to repeat if these require long-term usage.
- Taking the wrong pill, expired medicines, or borrowing prescriptions, leading to poisoning, allergic reactions, or worse, fatal outcomes.
