Health and Wellness, Q & A with Jeannie Marr

How do I get mom’s medication to her retirement home?

Q: My mom just moved into a retirement facility. How can I help her continue to get her medications now that she is living in a home?
A: At Creswell Health Mart Pharmacy we deliver medications to the Creswell and Cottage Grove area, and can mail prescriptions to those outside of our delivery area (within the State of Oregon). Setting up delivery service is easy and can not only help ensure that your mom receives her medications in a timely manner, but is also handy for those not living in a retirement facility. Whether you’re too sick to come into the pharmacy to pick up antibiotics or want to skip the hassle of traffic, delivery to your home or work can help reduce to trouble of filling your prescriptions. Our cost for delivery is minimal and is waved for patients that do live in retirement homes. Additionally, we can synchronize all your mom’s medications to come due on the same day each month and call her (or her caregiver) each month to go over any changes. We can even bubble pack her meds so that the chance that missing a dose is minimized. All of these services help ensure that her medications are taken regularly and correctly to get her the best healthy outcome possible. If you have any further questions about our delivery service, medication synchronization, bubble packing or any of our other services our staff is happy to help.
