You are caring for a person in an assisted living residence. The nurse has reviewed with you the person's service plan and your responsibilities. You are to assist with bathing, laundry, light housekeeping, and medication reminders. When you remind the person it is time for his medication, he asks you to assist with taking the medication. How do you respond?

You explain to the person that you are sorry but medication administration is not something you are properly trained to do. It is not currently part of the service plan. If he feels he needs assistance taking his medication you can contact the nurse and she can adjust the plan to meet his needs.
