Review meds with medical professionals

If you suspect that your client may be taking meds (OTC or prescription) that are questionable, it is best for you to run that question by their health care providers. You never want to make the choice for them to stop taking one type of med or another – especially if you only have an opinion and you are not a doctor. This is NOT your job! Your job is to provide the best care for that client whether you believe in conventional medicine or not! If you happen to make a decision for your client to stop taking a particular drug or drugs and they fall ill, it is your responsibility and your fault!

So, what if prescription medications are not afforded by your clients but they truly need them? First you may want to speak to their health care provider to see if there is a cheaper method of obtaining the medication. Next, check with Medicare or their supplemental insurance agency (if they have one) for they may have methods of obtaining cheaper prescriptions. Also, you may want to check with the drug manufacturers themselves. Many have programs that help elders afford their meds!

Remember your business is good business; showing your clients that With Age Comes Respect is the number one priority. Ensuring that they have their proper meds and can pay for them easily is just an added bonus showing that you believe in your own motto!
