Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy Helping Seniors To Take Their Medicines Correctly

Here at Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy we are aware that over 50% of people over the age of 50 years are taking several medications daily, and a high percentage of these people fail to take their medication as prescribed.

Some of the most common reasons for this include:

• Not filling new prescriptions from their doctor
• Forgetting to take their medications
• Doubling up on similar medications
• Missing doses or taking more than prescribed if they forget that they have already taken their medicine
• Taking medications at the wrong time
• Taking medications with food, drink or other medications that could interact with them
• Forgetting to get their prescription repeats filled

These issues can be addressed by simply having a chat with our Pharmacists here at Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy, about what free health services are available that will make taking daily medications much less confusing.

If you or a loved one is experiencing confusion over taking medications, then pop in and see us, you will be so glad you did.

MedsCheck At Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy

A MedsCheck and Diabetes MedsCheck is a service funded by the Australian Government and involves one-on-one time with your Pharmacist to discuss all your medicines.

There is no cost to the consumer to receive either the MedsCheck or Diabetes MedsCheck services.

Together we can ensure you are getting optimal benefits from your medicines.

A MedsCheck or Diabetes MedsCheck will help you better manage your medicines by increasing your knowledge about your medicines, giving you confidence in taking them and therefore reducing the risk of any adverse mishaps.

To be eligible for a MedsCheck you need to:

• Be a Medicare and/or Department of Veteran’s Affairs cardholder
• Have not received a MedsCheck, Diabetes MedsCheck, Home Medicines Review (HMR) or Residential Medication Management Review (RMMR) in the past 12 months
• Be living at home in a community setting
• Be taking five or more prescription medicines
• Have had a recent significant medical event

To be eligible for a Diabetes MedsCheck you need to:

• Be a Medicare and/or DVA cardholder
• Have not received a MedsCheck, Diabetes MedsCheck, Home Medicines Review (HMR) or Residential Medication Management Review (RMMR) in the last 12 months
• Be living at home in a community setting
• Have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (in the last 12 months) or have less than ideally controlled type 2 diabetes
