Rexall’s Medication Management Tools Simplify Caregiving
CARP RECOMMENDED PARTNER SPONSORED CONTENT
Did you know that over 8 million Canadians are CARERS? That’s 1 in every 4 Canadians.1
A caregiver provides support to someone in their lives, whether that be a young child or an aging parent, that has a chronic illness, injury or physical or cognitive condition.2
Providing care and support to a loved one can be stressful and time consuming. We understand you want to provide the best care possible. Rexall’s Medication Management tools can help simplify caregiving, as they are:
• Helpful and easy to use;
• Customized and designed to meet the specific needs of your loved one.
Rexall’s Medication Management Tools support you, so you can continue to support your loved one with peace of mind. Your Rexall® Pharmacy can help, here’s how:
Are you trying to ensure your loved one takes the right medication at the right time? Rexall’s Med Organizer is a convenient pack, and helpful tool to ensure that your loved one is always taking their medications as prescribed by their physician. The Med Organizer is a weekly card containing a 28 days’ supply of medication separated into 4 doses per day (breakfast, lunch, dinner & bedtime) called ‘blisters’ that are filled with the medications, based on the days and times, as prescribed by the physician. All your loved one needs to do, based on the time of day, is to push out the medications through the foil seal.
Additionally, if you are accompanying your loved one to their medical visits, or on other trips, the Med Organizer is a convenient way to travel with their medications. During an emergency, it also outlines all their medications, in an organized manner, for emergency health care providers to have the best information possible.
Your Rexall® pharmacy remembers to refill your loved one’s medications when they are due, so you don’t have to. When you enroll in Auto Refill, your Rexall® pharmacy will automatically refill the medication when it is due and before it runs out. Additionally, through Rexall® Reminders, your Rexall® pharmacy will be able to notify you when the medication is ready for pick up, so you don’t have to remember to call and ask for a refill every time.
You’ll never miss a refill because it will already be prepared for pick up.
Arm yourself with knowledge! A Medication Review can help you better understand your loved one’s medication therapy and ensure that medications are being taken as prescribed. A Medication Review provides you the opportunity to sit down with your loved one and your Rexall® Pharmacist, to review all their medications. Your Rexall® Pharmacist will determine if each medication is right for your loved one, is being taken correctly, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Additionally, your Rexall® Pharmacist will safely dispose of all old, expired, or unused medications for you.
Ensure that your loved one is getting the most out of their medications with our Medication Dashboard.
The Medication Dashboard is a personalized log of all medications that are taken regularly. With the Medication Dashboard, your Rexall® Pharmacist can work with you and your loved one to identify gaps in refills and develop a plan to help them stay on course with their medication therapy.
At Rexall®, we understand that caregiving can be challenging but we can help make it simpler, with our Medication Management tools. Speak with your Rexall® Pharmacist to learn more.
