A simple way to keep track of all your medications

Pate Rita, President of ElderCare 4 Families, dishes on a trick she has learned to make taking and keeping track of different medications easy on aging adults and their caregivers.

“Take a sample of each pill and tape to a form alongside the names (generic and brand) of the medication, along with dosing information and why someone is taking it. This system allows you a reference tool when verifying that all the right medications are being taken. Save an untaped version of the form on the computer so that it can be easily modified after future doctor appointments and medication changes.”
