Describing Medication

Avoiding Falls by “De-Prescribing” Medications

Nearly 60% of Americans — the highest ever — are now taking prescription drugs. More than half of elders take five or more medications. Why such lengthy medication lists?

Finding the Right Pill Organizer

While pill organizers can help avoid medication errors, there must be a good fit between the user and the pill organizer, otherwise, the benefits of using a pill organizer will be lost, and may actually impair one’s health.

Home Remedies for Aches and Pains of Aging

A 2012 National Health Interview Study found that 11.2 percent of adults report having daily pain.

Senior Women and Arthritic Thumb

Arthritis is a condition that wears down and destroys a joint in the body. Degenerative wear-and-tear arthritis known as osteoarthritis is the type of arthritis that most commonly affects the thumb.
