Caring For Your Parents

Do you know all the places you can turn to for help when caring for your parents?

Sometimes it can be a challenge to make sure your parents are getting the best care. Older parents may need to take a lot of medicines every day for a chronic condition or need help in addressing their disease states such as diabetes.

Your local community pharmacist is qualified to help with elderly patients seeking help for a range of health related problems.

Your pharmacist is a medicine expert, and can identify what management options are best for you. They can advise on which medicines may manage your symptoms and develop a plan for taking those medicines, including creating a Dose Administration Aid.

If your parents are living with diabetes, your pharmacist can also consult on how to effectively manage their medicines while providing advice on their blood sugar monitor.
