Protect the ones we love!

If necessary, protect the person from him/herself. At times ill persons will attempt to treat themselves without telling their doctor, or will fail to take medication. The doctor needs to know about all attempts at self treatment.

It isn’t easy taking care of someone at any age, but elderly do forget to take medication or refuse to take it at times. We have to be patient and make sure they take their medication. If they are not – we need to let the doctor know.

I pray for anyone taking care of someone who isn’t responsible for their actions due to dementia or Alzheimer disease. Best if someone can be there when they take medication so that they take the right dose and right meds at the right time.

It can get to desperate times and times when we begin to look into alternative care.
