S easons partners with CareRx to ensure medication service to our residents is accurate, effective and safe. Here is how having medication administered by Seasons staff and monitored by our pharmacy partner, CareRx, is convenient and can be beneficial to your health: 1) When medications are managed by Seasons staff, all faxes, daily deliveries, changes in doctor’s orders, etc., are coordinated through the Seasons Wellness Centre for your convenience and at no additional charge. This is especially beneficial when you see multiple doctors for different health reasons. In contrast, some external pharmacies charge for delivery and sometimes, the delivery is limited. 2) When the Seasons Health & Wellness team assists with medication administration, it is given at the correct time and dosage. This contributes to fewer drug interactions with other medications or supplements. 3) The Seasons Health & Wellness team can oversee the effectiveness of medications or the need to change medications. By monitoring general health concerns, such as blood pressure, blood glucose or pain levels, we can alert your doctor of a need for change. 4) For residents who choose to administer their medications, CareRx can have their prescriptions delivered to their Seasons home by CareRx, which

removes the unnecessary need for residents to leave home and disrupt their day for medication pick-ups. 5) Yearly, or as needed, residents can meet with a Certified Geriatric Pharmacist from CareRx, to review their medications, ask questions and discuss the benefits of different dispensing options, such as blister packs. 6) A complete profile (Administration Medication Record) from the pharmacy is readily available to the home and the resident to help record medication history for peace of mind. 7) At select Seasons communities, residents can access Karie, a smart pill companion supporting their independence and wellness. Should a resident miss a dose of their medication regimen, Karie automatically notifies the Health & Wellness team to follow up with the resident directly. 8) Partnered with CareRX, we have invested in Think Research, which makes a virtual doctor available for all residents who need it. This technology was crucial during the pandemic when it was safer to connect virtually. Now, at select Seasons communities, residents can enjoy the convenience of seeing a doctor without leaving the comfort of their suite.
