- Proper medication management can be a difficult task for some seniors. Our caregivers at All About Seniors offers medication assistance provide all the reassurance and assistance that you might need. With the right assistance and proper management, unfortunate mishaps can be avoided. You should also take note of any symptoms you might experience on certain medication including drowsiness, nausea, loss of appetite, etc.
