When a family member living with Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementia (ADRD) is no longer able to reliably take their medications, it is often up to family members to help ensure adherence. But medication management is no ordinary care responsibility. As many family caregivers know, managing a loved one’s medication is often complicated because of:
- The many different medications prescribed to persons living with dementia;
- Requirements to administer medications at certain times;
- The need to monitor side effects of new medications;
- A family member’s refusal to take medications;
- And many other reasons!
Jia Liu, PhD, RN, is a postdoctoral fellow at UT Health San Antonio, where her research focuses on helping family caregivers to persons living with dementia better manage medications. She is currently conducting a study to understand the challenges and issues of medication management and coping strategies developed by caregivers of persons living with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias along with the progression of the disease.
