Community Medication Safety Program

Independence at Home’s Community Medication Safety Program (C-MEDS) is designed to help older adults and their caregivers to help manage medications.

Medications can help us feel better and live longer, but they can also be dangerous if taken the wrong way. Many people make mistakes when taking their medicine. These mistakes can cause serious problems, ranging from falls to medical conditions, hospital stays and even death.
