Arogin Care Home is a Residential Care Home for adults with learning disabilities in Nepal. The Care Home has been operating Stroke Care and Rehabilitation, Dementia, and Alzheimer's Care, Residential and Day Care Service, Palliative Care, Ortho & Spinal Injury Care, and Physiotherapy Services for over a decade.
Besides that, Arogin Care Home has started providing pharmacy services in the past few years. Arogin Care Home provides a pharmacy service to its residents, which includes supplying medicines to the residents, dispensing prescriptions, and providing advice on medication.
This service is managed by a pharmacist and offers consultations on medications, regular health checks, as well as medicines for common conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
The pharmacy service at Arogin Care Home aims to make medication more accessible for the elderly people living in care homes and improve their quality of life by reducing the number of falls or other accidents caused by forgetfulness with taking their medicine.
Organizing the medications of its residents is one of the most important tasks for any Care Home facility. This can be difficult because many individuals take multiple daily medications that are subject to frequent change. Organizing and distributing medicines is, therefore, a critical responsibility for care home employees, and it takes a significant amount of time for management.
Therefore, Arogin Care Home came up with the idea to have their own pharmacy within the same premises for the following reasons as follows:
Pharmacy Service at Arogin Care Home is a one-stop service for all the medications that residents need. It is an innovative way to provide healthcare solutions for the elderly. Having Pharmacy Service within the same premises is not only about delivering medications but also about educating the patients about their medications and helping them understand how to take them. Our pharmacist is trained in counseling, communication, and customer service skills to help patients with their medication needs.
The cost of medicine, kits, and tests are completely exclusive of the Care home charge. Since the medical tests, medicine dose and kits rely on the condition of the patient’s health; medication and other kits charges cannot be predicted.
