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