Irene began visiting The Medicine Shoppe on the recommendation of her parents, who had been regular customers for a long time. She’s currently a caregiver to her 93-year-old mother and helps look after her health. Her daily challenges include making sure her mother adheres to her medication schedule and takes the right doses. It’s especially important for Irene to be able to recognize red flags and stay alert in case something goes wrong. That’s where her personal pharmacist Laurie comes in. She helps Irene run things smoothly and has given her a clear daily routine to follow in her role as caregiver. If anything changes, Laurie is always the first to know.
Irene checks in with Laurie every week. When the whole family is involved, your personal pharmacist becomes part of that family. Working together with your pharmacist can improve your ability to provide the best care to the people you love.
