Managing multiple medications on your own can be confusing and complicated. VNA nurses can help you with medication administration and management.
It’s not uncommon for seniors to take multiple medications prescribed by their physicians. However, over time, it can become difficult to manage these medications or even fully understand their purpose or side effects. VNA’s Private Care staff can oversee you or your loved one’s medication and can assist in administering any medications – such as IV therapy – that require more skilled care.
