When it's time to take additional measures to prevent potential medication errors.

 

Older adults may need to revisit the pharmacy who fills their prescriptions during the aging process.  While the “corner drug store” may be appropriate right now, additional demands from a pharmacy may be indicated once a person moves into long term care communities like assisted living, memory care, or residential care homes.  Many of these senior living models are mandated by their State to abide by rules to prevent medication assistance errors.  This is what will differentiate pharmacies who specialize in serving the elderly from the “corner drug store” pharmacy. Consult with your pharmacist, doctor, or your senior housing provider if its time to switch to a pharmacy who delivers prescriptions to your door and takes additional precautions to help prevent you, or your caregiver, from making potential medication errors.
