Tips for an Organized Medicine Cupboard – An organized medicine cabinet saves time and makes finding the right medications easy, in addition to improving the quality of home medical care.

Firstly, the medicine cabinet can be a chaotic territory, old prescriptions you never use or pills you last took years ago that no longer fit into your medicine regimen or are far past their expiration date. If the following sounds familiar to you, you should change something: You suffer from a headache and are looking for an ibuprofen, rummage in the tablet box to find the right box but it is nowhere to be seen? Or you need to fix your pills for the new week but you are missing one package and can’t find it? This can become very stressful and can quickly put an elderly person under stress.
