Managing your loved one’s medications and medical equipment.
Meds & Equipment
Your loved one’s needs can change, sometimes quickly, during the course of a serious illness. And that can mean an immediate change in appropriate medications, medical supplies and equipment.
For example, your loved one’s doctors may adjust the type, dosage or frequency of a medication at any moment. Chautauqua Hospice Care will communicate with your pharmacy and coordinate the delivery of prescriptions and refills. Also, our nurses monitor and manage your loved one’s prescription schedule to make sure they’re taking the right medication at the right time.
In addition, changes in needs for medical equipment and supplies may occur as a disease progresses. Your loved one may shift from using a cane, to a walker, to a wheelchair. New needs may arise for a hospital bed, shower chair or bedside commode. Chautauqua Hospice Care manages delivery and setup of the right equipment wherever your loved one calls home.
We’re there beside you, with the right medications and equipment as they’re needed.
