The Hampton Residences

Medication errors and subsequent hospitalizations are common occurrences among the elderly and I serve as an occupational therapy assistant. The Home Medication Station is a highly organized, easily understood system of managing one’s medication reducing the risk of over/under medicating oneself. Increasing independence is at the heart of occupational therapy, and the Home Medication System is what I intend to promote to my patients to assist them in maintaining their independence in their homes – probably for longer than normal – thanks to an organized, convenient system of medication management.
