Caring for Elderly Parents – Can a Simple Pill Blister Card Make Everyone’s Life Easier?

caring-for-elderly-parentsYour parents, as they continue to age and become elderly, will most likely, at some point, require additional care, as they struggle to remain independent with age. This usually means that medication may be involved to help with cognitive and/or physical impediments. When medication is involved, it can sometimes be difficult to track whether the necessary daily dosage has been taken. Heck, even young adults with full cognitive abilities forget whether they have taken their supplements each day, or if they remembered to give their children their Flintstone Vitamins that morning before school. The point is everyone, especially the elderly, when taking daily medication in pill form, can use a method of keeping track whether they have taken the correct dosage on the right day. That is why using a simple pill blister card can make not only elderly parents, but also everyone who takes oral medication in pill form a whole lot easier.

Most likely everyone has, at one time or another, seen a pill blister card, it is just that you might not know a pill blister card by name. Briefly, a pill blister card is a modified type of packaging that allows you to load and organize a person’s daily dosage of pills. Not only does it contain the daily mandated pill dosage, you can label the dates that a person needs to take his or her recommended dosage. In addition, a pill blister card allows a person to make notes pertaining to the pills, including the time of day the pill or pills were taken. Simply stated, a pill blister card makes it easy for a prescribed medicinal pill taker to fill and refill his or her needed dosage, organize and keep record of the medication, minimize any medication mistakes, and can grant much needed peace of mind to the children of elderly parents, that their parents are taking the necessary dosage correctly, on the day mandated.
