The article presents the author's insights on the role of caregivers in medication adherence of elderly, chronic condition, and disabled patients. She says that 75% of adults do not comply with their medications due to various reasons like forgetfulness, not filling prescriptions, and lack of medication information, in which the caregiver must remind and help them take their medication. However, she argues that caregivers must also take care of themselves in order to take care of others.
