Medication for Assisted Living Residents
A wide range of medication packaging options are available at the American Integrative Pharmacy. These include blister packaging which is a requirement for many nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
There are other custom options that can help communities maintain compliance with the prescribed schedule of medication. This is particularly helpful for patients that need to take several medications throughout the day at multiple times.
Patients can get two packs a month if they need to take medications twice daily. One pack can contain all morning medications while the other contains the evening ones. We believe in rooting our assisted living pharmacy services in relationships.
We deliver customized medication packaging services by knowing a community’s residents and their unique needs and challenges. This helps in easing the burden of staff, residents, and their loved ones.

AIP Pharmacists Adding Value to Assisted Living Communities
These are a few things that AIP pharmacists do which can assist communities:
- Local Pharmacist Support and Customer Service
Your AIP pharmacist will get to know your residents by spending time at the community. You don’t speak with a call center when you have a concern, question, or issue. Instead, you speak with a dedicated, polite, and helpful pharmacist. AIP can securely deliver medications when your patients require emergency medications outside pharmacy hours. Staff and residents trust us because of our honesty and personal connection.
- Medication Regimen Reviews for Peace of Mind
AIP ensures to complete a full medication review whenever a resident moves into a partner community. Transition in care is vital for reducing medication errors. Medication review allows pharmacists to collect needed information for making drug recommendations and coordinating therapy with all the physicians involved. This helps in better quality of life for all residents and enhanced peace of mind for the care team.
- Reduced Errors and Fewer Questions
The automation and technology used by AIP reduces errors both before and after the medication is dispensed. An image of the resident is included in all prescription labels. This helps with administering and checking medications.
- Education Allows for Enhanced Care
Education is a vital component for every assisted living community. AIP managers and pharmacists provide annual medication competency assessment, training on compliance, ongoing medication administration observations, and any other topic that is requested by the team.
- Lower Costs and Fewer Medications
The two most common complaints patients have in regards to medications in assisted living facilities are:
- Medications cost too much
- Patients are taking excess medications
AIP pharmacists are eager to work in collaboration with doctors and nurses for minimizing the number of medications being used. We also offer generic options and suggestions for achieving the same goals. Residents benefit from better outcomes and the convenience of taking fewer medications. Facilities benefit from saving costs on nursing time and medications as well.
