Medical Helplines For The Elderly – Taking Care

Managing multiple medications and prescriptions can be challenging for many older adults and their carers. If you have recently returned home from hospital after an operation or are undergoing treatment then you may have new prescriptions and have concerns about how to take the medication or possible side-effects from the various combinations.

This is why Taking Care have introduced medical helplines for the elderly with their personal alarm service. Trained pharmacists are available to call 7 days a week if you have a question about your pills or prescriptions. You can speak to a qualified nurse 24 hours a day about any wellbeing concern you may have, in strictest confidence.

Customer recieve an alarm base unit and pendant alarm and can enhance their telecare service by adding fall detectors and other monitored devices.
