Taking Medication


What is this?

You may need help if you experience difficulties taking or remembering your prescribed medicines:
  • Help for you or for your relatives or carers if they are helping you
  • Someone to remind you to take your medicine
  • An electronic pill dispenser that has an alarm to remind you

How do I get this service?

  • If you are already in receipt of a homecare package you can ask your provider
  • Your doctor or chemist may be able to help by providing your medicine in a dosset or blister pack
  • Electronic medication reminders can be purchased privately.  You can search for them on ChooseMySupport

Managing your medicines

Managing your medicines is a key part of staying well and can sometimes be a challenge.  Find out more about your medicines with the NHS Medicines Guide.  If you have any questions your local pharmacist or General Practitioner (GP) can provide helpful advice and assistance
