Olivia discovered her independence was at risk by accident.
Olivia loves volunteering in her community, playing with her grandchildren and giving back to the community. After years of independence, Olivia was shocked to find herself in the middle of a mystery. One afternoon, she was walking around her apartment, and the next thing she knew the room was spinning.
This incident prompted Olivia to talk with United Way and get a comprehensive medication review. As part of United Way's Safe and Healthy Aging initiative, the pharmacist reviewed Olivia's medications and communicated the medication issues with her doctor.
United Way of Dane County and our partners do even more with your support:
1. We're educating family and informal caregivers about the risks of adverse drug events and falls--and how to prevent them.
2. We're working with pharmacists to provide medication assessments to seniors, further reducing their risk of adverse drug events and related falls.
