Medication Management for Seniors - May 18 in Darien, CT

Did you know that one in every three hospitalizations in older adults results from medication mishaps?

Did you know that one in every four medications prescribed may be unnecessary?

Aging In Place in Darien and Nursing and Home Care are jointly presenting Medication Management at the Darien Town Hall.

Elaine Abrams, MPH, RN, and Community Health Coordinator at Nursing & Home Care will talk about drug interactions, how to read drug facts and labels and what to ask your doctor.

I'm going to attend and will blog about the information I get from the presentation.

Don't miss this important meeting - Tuesday, May 18th, 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. -- Room 119 at Darien Town Hall. It's free and open to the public.

To register, call Aging In Place at 203-202-2912.
