Helpful Tips

  • Keep your medications and supplies organized, labeled, and in the same place, for ease in locating them and to prevent medication errors. Consult a vision rehabilitation therapist for help with this.
  • If you use a pillbox to manage your medications, make sure you take your time and focus all your attention on filling the pillbox to help avoid medication errors.
