“About 5 years ago when my mother was 88 years old and facing surgery and other health problems, we had a big decision to make concerning her living conditions. She was having a lot of problems managing her medications and remembering to take them. We were considering whether she should go into an assisted living facility or if we could keep her at her house and living independently. She really wanted to stay in her home. Then fortunately we learned about Sona Pharmacy and its Access program. They were able to place all her daily medications in a 7-day pill pack with the times and days clearly indicated – morning, noon, dinner time, and bedtime. This has enabled her to manage her medications very well and she has been able to continue to live independently in her home. This has worked out so well for us and we are very grateful to Sona. I have recommended Sona to her doctors and now to everyone to whom I talk.”
As our population continues to live longer and maintain a higher quality of life, it can become more difficult when independence begins to change. At the most basic level, we all want to stay home and remain self-sufficient as long as possible. Sona Access recognizes that and we want to help.
Memory loss happens gradually as we age. This means sometimes, just remembering to take your medication can be difficult. Luckily, we have a choice to be proactive and start planning. The main focus of Sona Access is medication management; which means we come alongside you to provide medication assistance services.
- Sona provides a unique packaging system to help you with adherence (or consistency) and stay on track. Our 7-day pill pack is very similar to a weekly pill box you may already be familiar with. Your pill pack keeps you organized and eliminates the clutter of old or discontinued medications. No more stacks of pill bottles or uncertainty identifying pills. This product also provides a quick at-a-glance measure of missed doses.
- Speaking of old or discontinued medications, our Access team is behind the scenes doing some investigating! What does that mean? This means we are talking to your providers about current medications and performing a full medication review each time you have a transition of care or discharge from the hospital.
- When multiple providers are involved or transitions occur, medications can become complex. We can help you navigate all the information in discharge documents. Our team of technicians and care coordinators work diligently to make sure all of your medications are as up to date as possible. Sona believes in keeping your medication profile as up to date and straight forward as possible.
Spend your time with family, friends, and participating in activities you enjoy. Not stressing over your medications. Together we can navigate through the hard parts. Make Sona Access a part of your healthcare team!
