Our online chemist has an advanced infrastructure with highly efficient procedures using state-of-the-art technology. There is a combination of factors that help us deliver our unique brand of service to care homes.
Care Home Monitored Dosage System
The dosette box/weekly blister pack systems allow a carer or patient to see which medications need to be taken and when. It also allows them to quickly identify if meds have been missed or too many have been taken. Overall, it’s a good system for individuals who struggle to take their medicines on time due to their conditions or circumstance and people with duties of care.
As a pharmacy team, we understand how important it is to take medicine on time and not miss any doses. And this is why we can help organise weekly pill trays for care homes that require them. The pharmacy will put a resident’s medication in a weekly blister pack which is easy to follow. This makes it easier for carers to ensure that a resident sticks to their medication schedule, meaning you can manage their conditions better.
Better compliance and safe administration of medicines
The system allows for better compliance and safe administration of medicines.
Many of the older population use this system to help manage complex medicine regimes. So, this is an important tool for care homes that enhances medicine adherence and helps residents manage their medicine effectively. This will also help prevent medicine wastage and overdose in some patients.
Please note: not all medications are suitable for blister packs, but the pharmacist will be able to answer your queries.
