Lack of medication adherence among elderly has severe health-related and financial consequences including being the likely cause of 10% of hospital admissions and 23% of nursing home admissions in the U.S. Older adults living independently in their houses and independent living facilities can benefit from assistance with the management of their medications especially as their cognitive abilities diminish. To understand medication adherence practices and barriers among older adults and their potential attitudes and potential acceptance of a technology intervention to improve adherence we surveyed 65 individuals between the ages of 67 and 96 in an independent living facility. The average age of the sample was 83 and participants reported taking six prescription medications on average per day. Our results indicated an average adherence level of 63% among this population with daily memorized routines being the most common practice to maintain adherence. Participants had positive attitudes regarding a potential self-managed adherence technology to improve their adherence and thought of it as potentially useful. Interestingly participants did not show much interest in receiving help from their facility for their adherence. Findings can inform future efforts in the development and deployment of medication adherence technologies for daily use based on a human factors framework.
