Information on Pharmacy Services & Dietary Supplements
Many pharmacies today strive to be senior-friendly. Some have increased their services to seniors, expanded their product offerings, and even modify packaging to better accommodate the needs of seniors. Some pharmacies, for example, may offer prescription labels with larger text that’s easier to read.
Programs for seniors at pharmacies today range from consultation programs in which a pharmacist will review all your medications and even answer questions about your Medicare coverage, to follow-up service to check on you after you’ve picked up your medication to make sure you understand the dosage and are not having any problems taking your medicine.
Some pharmacies have clinics on site with nurses on hand making it convenient to get flu shots or treat for minor ailments so you don’t have to make a special trip to the doctor.
Most pharmacies carry a large selection of products for seniors, including caregiver supplies and mobility products, like canes and walkers. Some even offer an extensive line of home medical equipment and supplies.
To give seniors a price break, most pharmacies offers senior citizen discounts, or some type of discount programs specifically for seniors. Some also provide home delivery services.
Whether you’re looking for a local independent pharmacy or your favorite chain, you’ll find pharmacies in your area with dedicated pharmacists ready to assist you.
