An interesting article was just released by healthday.com emphasizing the importance of helping Seniors manage their medications and finances. Researchers in the Netherlands published a study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society detailing how about 38% of seniors over the age of 85 need help managing their medications. Experts in geriatrics have estimated the true incidence of these problems to be even higher because the study was heavily reliant on self-reported responses.
