What's the best way to manage my senior health medications?

Senior home care and medications

Unless specifically told otherwise by your senior health care physician, it is important to take medications with an 8-ounce glass of water. This amount of water eases dilution of the medications in our system, and speeds the medication process for us. Read the labels carefully - they often state 'never with milk', 'never with caffeine', 'only with.....'. Some liquids can actually counteract the effect of medication, so caution is necessary.
