Independant Living

CareRx services are not limited to complex care and assisted living facilities. Our medication management solutions are also designed to meet the needs of seniors that are still active and living independently. While we still offer traditional blister cards, we are pleased to be the only provider on Vancouver Island of the new, safer and easier Dispill™ medication management system.

The Dispill™ system is simple, safe and convenient and provides many benefits:

  • Blisters are easy to open, detachable and portable;
  • Colour-coding clearly indicates time of day medication should be taken;
  • Blisters are filled by our pharmacists which greatly reduces medication errors.

Dedicated Pharmacist

At CareRx each independent living residence is serviced by a dedicated pharmacist that will handle all of your medication needs. This single point of contact allows us to get to know your residents and better track different drug interactions. Our pharmacists make regular on-site visits and conduct frequent check-ins with the goal of providing top quality care.

At Home Medication Reviews

A CareRx pharmacist will regularly visit residents in their own home to provide one-on-one medication reviews. Our pharmacists look for ways to streamline each resident’s medication plan while checking for interactions and complications to ensure they are safe and effective.

On-site Pharmacy

Residents can drop their prescriptions off directly at the front desk (if in an independent living facility) instead of having to go to the pharmacy. We pick up and deliver on a daily basis so orders are filled promptly.

Access to retail products carried by Pharmasave

An additional benefit for our independent customers is convenient access to the full catalogue of retail products you can find in a Pharmasave store. We make it easy for our customers to request extra items such as Kleenex or toothpaste that are then delivered straight to your door with your medications. Products ordered through CareRx are added directly to your monthly invoice.

For your added convenience, we bill on a monthly basis and are pleased to offer three payment options for our independent customers: credit card, pre-authorized debit and cheque.

Please ask us for more details about this program and how you can sign-up today.
