Caremark Oldham are happy to assist with managing your medication

Date published: 20 December 2018

Making sure you take the right medication at the right time is vital and part of your pathway to continuing good health and independence. 

Remembering what medication to take and when does not need to be a worry for you as Caremark can support you, relieving you of concerns which you may have.

Caremark can relieve the stress by supporting you to manage your medication.

Many people of all ages find it difficult to manage medication.

Taking a variety of different pills in differing amounts at specific times can be very challenging to cope with. 

Medication assistance can be given in many ways to ensure you are taking the right medicine at the right time.

Caremark can prompt you, assist you or give full support by administration.

That way the helpful staff will be ensuring that your health needs are met.

They can also discuss your health needs with you in general.

If you need an appointment with a healthcare professional, then Caremark can support you to make the appointment.

Staff can also accompany you should you so wish.

Another way Caremark 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.

It will be clearly marked once you have taken your medication to avoid any confusion.

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 the Caremark care team receives full training in medication in an award-winning training course.

They are qualified and approved to prompt, assist or administer your medication assistance.

Caremark can ensure that your prescription goes in to the doctor's surgery on time.

They can also collect your items from the chemist when they are ready.

Staff can then bring them to you or arrange for regular deliveries straight from the pharmacy if this service better suits your needs.
