CentraCare becomes the Part D Medicare prescription provider for its participants. There are no copays or deductibles for prescriptions or medical supplies recommended by the Interdisciplinary Care Team for participants who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid.
The Pharmacy team customizes pill packs and medications for each individual. Medication safety is of primary importance! Multiple medical conditions and multiple medications are common among aged persons. The CentraCare pharmacist regularly reviews medications. The Day Center Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs) and medical staff are familiar with each participant’s day-to-day medical condition and behaviors. These trained professionals can respond quickly if they note balance, memory, behavioral, appetite, or other changes in your loved one, particularly after a change in medication.
Nutrition Counseling and Dietary Supervision by Professionals
Dieticians work with the medical team and chefs to customize meals to the needs of each individual. Care plans include custom prepared meals for elders whose medical conditions may have affected their ability to chew or swallow safely. Low sodium, high protein, diabetic, vegetarian, and other special diets are part of care planning as well, and are coordinated with Senior Services of Southwest Michigan.
