Medication Delivery

Many elders need help administering their medications. We provide that by monitoring medications for effectiveness, side-effects, contra-indications, and over-site when prescriptions are ordered by more than one doctor. We provide a service which includes:

  • Medication delivery to elder’s home
  • Order and re-order of medications
  • Updating medication changes as per doctor’s orders
  • Educating the caregiver whenever changes are made

Home Safety Check

Another tool to ease concerns is a Home Safety Check for when a parent or elder lives alone. There may be a concern for risks of falling, loneliness, lack of compliance with medications, lack of socialization and vulnerability with telephone scams.

Our Home Safety Check includes:

  • Check the home for elder safety
  • Check the home for maintenance that needs attention
  • Room-by-room attention to fall prevention
  • Review of security in the event of an emergency
  • Safety tips and emergency information sheets
  • Community resources, such as in-home care providers, transportation alternatives, day programs and alternative housing can be recommended
  • Referral information about electronic solutions

All sessions with Pat Sanborn are 75 minutes long and include travel in Santa Rosa and phone/emails directly related to current goals. They also include Pat’s research time, meeting agendas and reports leading to next steps ahead (as needed).  All sessions are with Pat Sanborn and here are some examples of a session:

  • Visiting an elder at their home
  • Meeting in our conference room
  • Conference call meeting by phone or Skype
  • Meeting with a professional, such as lawyer, financial or placement person
  • Gathering and ‘’deciphering’ medical or family information
  • Advocacy with a doctor
 
Working with you is better than I expected!
