Nancy is an autonomous 85-year-old living in her own home. She is hospitalized for atrial fibrillation and two new medications are added to her regime. She has been forgetful and asks the nurse to repeat statements several times. She doesn’t think she can remember to take all her medications and asks if Medicare can pay for someone to come administer the medications twice a day.
