Try: Try going with cr to his her next medical appointment and ask questions yourself keep a written record of what the doctor has said it could be that cr didn’t clearly hear what the doctor said or misremembered the instructions having someone there to take good notes can be very helpful afterward print out easy-to-follow instructions based on your notes and put several laminated copies around cr’s house so he she can find them easily if cr isn’t a good advocate for him herself go with cr to his her next medical appointment having you — or another relative or friend — at the doctor doctor’s office to reinforce cr cr’s perception that the medication is not working can help him her obtain more effective treatment
