Research conducted by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network, indicates that as the number of prescription medications a person ages 70 or older takes increases, so do challenges with medication management and potential health risks. Register for this web seminar to discover the ways medication can jeopardize an older adult’s health and independence. Learn about a solutions guide created by Home Instead that could help families and their older loved ones pinpoint potential threats and start the conversations that can potentially lead to effective solutions.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe at least three medication-related risks for older adults and potential solutions;
  • Strengthen the role of the family in reducing the potential for medication-related health risks; and,
  • Help family caregivers feel more confident about older adults being safe at home.
