Why managing your family's medications may be impacting you in a negative way

Your personal pharmacist can help you with things like getting the proper rest, and supplementation that is best for you. They also have important knowledge to share and they are on your side.  That is a huge benefit of the Medicine Shoppe. You have the ability to get to know us as we work together to help keep your health at an optimal level. Moms often take care of their families health and medications.  They often look after their parents (and in laws) as well as their husband and kids.  This can be time consuming and at times overwhelming (often referred to as "sandwich generation".  Your personal pharmacist is equipped to take some of that pressure off of your plate, by implementing the following:

  • Med Sync - less trips to the pharmacy and clearer goals for medication therapy
  • Blister packaging - one stop medication visits
  • Making use of our MS App - easy and convenient, a time saver with important medication info at your fingertips
  • Medication management and Med Reviews

The Canadian Mental Health Association’s annual Mental Health Week is May 7-13, 2018

  • Every May for the last 66 years, Canadians in communities, schools, workplaces and the House of Commons have rallied around CMHA Mental Health Week.
  • When we “get loud” on social media and with the people we love, we help dispel stigma and promote better understanding of mental health.

Mental health is about more than mental illness

  • One in five Canadians live with mental health problems, mental illness or addiction. But the reality is, five in five of us have mental health, just like we all have physical health.
  • We can all benefit from celebrating, promoting and acknowledging the role that good mental health plays in living a full and meaningful life.

Let’s #getloud about what mental health really is

  • Mental health is about more than being happy all the time. It’s about feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life, and managing life’s highs and lows.
  • Everyone deserves to feel well, whatever their mental health experience. And we all need a support system to lean on.
