Case study: Abbeyfield

Using medication dispensers to improve quality of care

Posted: 6/15/2017 11:07:47 AM
It’s estimated that people over 75 account for at least 45% of the annual prescription cost, with 35 - 40% of them taking four or more medicines. A survey of GPs found that 79% of them were not confident that this cohort of patients were taking their medication correctly six months after consultation.
 
Failing to take medication as prescribed can lead to deterioration in health and increase the risk of confusion and falls.
 
How is Abbeyfield using medication dispensers to help the people it supports remain safe and
independent for longer?
