This simple service has been life changing for so many of our patients. From those with complex medication therapies to elderly patients wanting to maintain independence in their homes, medication management via packaging can greatly reduce the risk of medication errors made in home. Imagine trying to take 10 potentially life saving medications, on time daily, without forgetting one, or accidentally taking one twice. We also serve assisted living facilities and group homes.

We will discuss potential medication interactions between drugs, supplements, and herbal products, along with a discussion and a review of any concerns that you may have about side effects or use of your medication therapy.

This simple service has been life changing for so many of our patients. From those with complex medication therapies to elderly patients wanting to maintain independence in their homes, medication management via packaging can greatly reduce the risk of medication errors made in home. Imagine trying to take 10 potentially life saving medications, on time daily, without forgetting one, or accidentally taking one twice. We have had seniors go from a state of barely functioning in their home, to returning to activities and self care that they haven't been able to do in years do to simply having their medications prepared and organized for them monthly. We have a couple options in medication packaging, including an envelope-based system and blistercards. The envelope based system (Doc-u-dose) separates medications into labeled envelopes with an envelope of each time of the day that a patients takes a medication. For an example, a patient may have an am envelope with 5 different morning medications in it, a noon envelope with 2 different meds and an evening medications with 3 different meds. Each envelope is labeled with a date, time of day, medication name, quantity, description of tablet, and patient name. Patients typically receive medications one time monthly via free in town delivery or pick-up at the pharmacy. Medication changes that are made mid month, are done in pharmacy for no additional charge. Costs: $12.00 monthly
