Managing your medication
Many people of all ages find it difficult to manage medicines. Taking a variety of different pills in differing amounts at specific times can be very challenging to cope with. We can relieve the stress by supporting you to manage your medication.
Support with your medication can be given in many ways to ensure that you are taking the right medication at the right time. We can remind you to take your medication, assist you to take the right medication or give full support by administration, encouraging your confidence and satisfaction that your health needs are being met.
We can also discuss your health needs with you in general, and if you need an appointment with a healthcare professional, then we can support you to make the appointment and accompany you, should you wish this.
Taking the stress out of medication
Another way we can help is to support you to have your prescribed medication put into a Monitored Dosage System by the Pharmacist. You will still have to take your medication at the right time, but you won't have to worry about organising them, or wondering whether you have taken your medication or not, as it will be clearly marked. However, if you still need a lot of help with your medication then we can administer your tablets from this system for you.
Every member of our care team receives full training in Medication and they are qualified and approved to prompt, assist or administer your medication.
We can organise your prescriptions for you
Remembering to obtain and renew prescribed medication can be a difficult chore for many people. We can ensure that your prescription goes in to the doctor's surgery on time, and we can then collect your prescription items from the chemist when they are ready, and bring them to you, or arrange for regular deliveries straight from the pharmacy, if this service better suits your needs
