As individuals embark on a new phase of life—whether in an assisted living community, skilled nursing facility, or other type of extended care setting—they require specialized pharmacy services.

In fact, nearly two million Americans rely on the services of long-term care (LTC) pharmacies like Guardian every day for specialized pharmacy needs beyond regular medication dispensing.

These valuable LTC pharmacy services are designed for older adults and individuals with complex medical needs living in a variety of care settings and include benefits such as:

  • Around-the-clock access to essential medications
  • Advanced medication packaging technology
  • Assistance in navigating complex insurance benefit plans
  • Medication coordination across multiple doctors and care settings
