Older students need to learn how to identify and take the correct medication in the prescribed dosages and at the correct time. Sometimes it is possible to identify medications by the size and shape of the container, but containers are frequently similar or identical. Sometimes, pills themselves can be identified by the shape or texture, but this isn't always the case. Use the following strategies to help identify medications.
Pill Organizers & Splitters
If it isn't practical to keep medications in the original container because you take a number of pills and at different times, you may want to use a pill organizer. There are many options of pill organizers. Select one that meets the needs of the student.
