How does a memory care community in West Columbia receive my loved one’s Exelon (Rivastigmine)?
Your loved one’s provider is responsible for ordering your loved one’s medications, while Colonial Garden’s memory care staff is responsible for medication administration and management.
All medication administered to our residents is in compliance with all state laws and board regulations. Our licensed staff follows the written policies and procedures for safe and effective drug administration provided by medical professionals for the procurement, administration, storage, control, record keeping, and disposal of all medication.
Memory care staff will administer the medications as ordered, monitor for side effects and efficacy, and reach out to your loved one’s primary care doctor if they feel any medication is not achieving the desired result.
