Is your loved one concerned about the level of medical care provided in respite care? Some seniors may find it difficult to commit to a senior living community that does not include medication administration. We at Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso ensure that medication administration is provided as one crucial component of our comprehensive respite care program.

About Our Medication Administration

Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso’s highly-trained care team is well-versed in medication administration. Our residents in our respite care program may take several different medicines for various health conditions and to recover from illnesses or surgeries. Thus, we have to ensure safe medication administration for all residents, as taking the wrong medicines or at the wrong dosage may have serious consequences.

Our caregivers strictly ensure that proper medication administration is observed, including given to the right patient, given the right drug, given at the right time, via the right route, and at the right dose. With medical administration taken care of, residents can have peace of mind to recover,  knowing that their medical needs are in good hands.

Benefits of Having Medication Administration in Your Senior Living Community

Medication administration is beneficial to our respite care residents for a variety of reasons. Here are four main advantages of having someone who can help with medication administration:

  • There will be a lower possibility of side effects and interactions between different drugs.
  • With professional help, patients will be more willing to take the meds at the right time and right dosage, instead of relying on themselves.
  • Patients and their families will have peace of mind with the assurance that medications are administered correctly.
  • There will be a reduced chance of illness and even fatality due to wrong medications.

When Should You Consider Moving into a Senior Living Community?

Respite care offers a trial for your loved one to experience living in a senior community without needing to commit long-term. If your loved one is hesitant about assisted living and cannot decide if it is for them, a short stay in respite care can allow them to get a taste of the amenities and programs provided by Rittenhouse Village At Valparaiso.

Respite care can also give caregivers a well-deserved break. It is also useful when a caregiver does not have the skills or knowledge to care for a loved one while they recover.
