Assisting residents with medications is a very important task. Many residents move into assisted living facilities because they can no longer manage the medications they take. With assistance, residents can enjoy improved health and wellness. All assisted living caregivers must complete some training required by the state before they can help any assisted living resident with medications. Medication assistance training consists of many practical lessons about medications: the caregiver’s role, monitoring resident health and medication use, assisting with medications, and reporting medication assistance.
