Long-Term Care Homes

Caring for patients in long-term care homes is a unique healthcare service. These patients often have more than one medical condition, requiring a more complex level of medication management. Our team of pharmacists and pharmacy assistants play a significant role in the provision of safe and effective medication therapy. Our ultimate goal is to help maintain the quality of life of the long-term care resident. 

 

Pharmacy practice in long-term care homes is broad-based, including a wide variety of services. Some examples of these services provided at The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy in the Fredericton Co-Op include:

 

  • Compliance packaging

  • Monthly MAR sheets

  • Medication Reviews

  • Recommendations to both staff and physicians to promote optimal drug therapy

  • Monitoring patient outcomes

  • Identifying and resolving drug interactions

My wife and I have been customers of the CO-OP Medicine Shoppe since they opened in 2002. We have found the pharmacists and staff exceedingly helpful with advice on some of the strange drug concoctions some of us have to take these days, as well as the common every day sniffles, aches and pains. They always seem to treat us like members of the family and their service is fast and courteous and always with a smile! We even stop to say "Hello" when we are not using their services! A welcome addition to our lives.
