Supporting Senior Care
Medication adherence and management are key concerns in senior care, as the COVID-19 pandemic has made evident. In addition to being more vulnerable to illness, seniors may suffer from underlying health conditions, which often requires taking multiple medications in a day. The challenges associated with monitoring medication adherence increases the importance of implementing a solution that facilitates safe and secure access to the correct medication at the correct time.
