Something to watch out for

Something to watch out for 

Blister packs are helpful, but your family member may still get confused when using them. Look at the pack each week to check if your family member is taking the right medicines at the right time.

Some family members might find it hard to get the medicines out of the blister pack. If this happens, then talk to staff at the local pharmacy or the nearest Independent Living Centre (ILC) to get information about tools to help them, such as a Pil-Bob (See section 5 for contact details for your nearest ILC).
