This Week's Carenote - 8/12/10

I am trying to keep my mom and dad in their home as long as possible and we have hired an aide from a home care company. She is able to help with bathing and household chores, but is not allowed to actually give my mom her medicine from the pill dispenser I put the medications in.

The aide can remind Dad to take his pills and ask him to give Momís medication to her, but she cannot actually administer the meds herself.  I canít be there all the time to make sure they get their medication at the right time every day.  Does anyone have any suggestions for what to do in my situation?
