In today’s challenging times, it is important to ensure that everyone has access to needed medications during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is also true for many vulnerable seniors living in assisted living or another senior living community, according to health experts. Keeping our seniors safe and in good health should be the goal of every community nationwide.
Why Getting Medications Can Be Difficult for Elderly Citizens
As the current health crisis continues around the world, certain other medications are becoming difficult to find. There are some reasons why our elderly citizens may have difficulty finding and getting certain essential medications during this time of our nation’s history. Assisted living facilities often have an on-call pharmacist able to ensure that the residents continue to receive their essential medications needed.
Benefits of Seniors Getting Tested for COVID-19
Those who also have chronic underlying health conditions are more prone to getting COVID-19 and developing serious and sometimes life-threatening complications from this deadly virus outbreak. This is one of the reasons why getting seniors tested for COVID-19 is so crucial. Seniors living in a community setting are also at greater risk of contracting the virus.
Check with Senior Centers & Care Homes for Testing Information
Seniors, or their concerned family members, can check with a nearby senior living community to inquire if they are doing COVID-19 testing. Many community senior centers have up-to-date information on where and when to get COVID-19 testing.
