It can be challenging to develop a safe, effective system for organizing and identifying your prescription and over-the-counter medications when you can’t read the labels because of vision loss.
The Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired is offering one-hour presentations that will provide techniques and ideas to help you better manage your medications. You will learn ways to identify medications, remember the prescribed dosage, and keep track of how often you need to take them. We will look at solutions, from large print to smart phone apps.
Emphasis will be on tips for older adults with changing vision—useful for anyone who takes daily medications. All are welcome to participate.
This program is made possible with the support of an Iowa County nonprofit foundation, the Courtier Foundation, and the Vogel Foundation.
No registration is required.
