Long Term Care

Long-Term Care & Assisted Living

At Champion Rx, we feel that long-term care and assisted living serve a crucial service in the care continuum, managing medications for vulnerable, medically complex residents. With the typical patient receiving 8 to 10 different medications each day, effective delivery of pharmacy services is essential to the overall carer and services patients receive. Also, our pharmacy and pharmacists are always personally accessible to provide consultation, manage medications and help with all related pharmacy services, including but not limited to, reviewing residents' clinical needs to ensure that patients receive the right medications at the right time. These services begin upon receipt of each prescription and continue after dispensing the drug.

“As a hospice nurse, a considerable amount of time is spent reviewing medications for efficacy, ensuring medications are given appropriately per physicians’ orders,discussing and reviewing medications carefully case by case with pharmacists. This is where I’d like to thank Chapmion Rx for stepping in to provide a most excellent service. They are accurate in dispensing medications, reliable and punctual in their deliveries, friendly and knowledgeable in their practice. Just recently, a mutual patient whom we provide service to, had episodes of agitation requiring frequent adjustments and changes to their medications and plan of care almost daily. I called Suzanne, Pharmacist at Champion Rx, to consult with her on this case. Suzanne gave a detailed description on the effects of certain medications and the benefits of the use of a certain antipsychotic medication having the best therapeutic effect if given scheduled throughout the day. After collaborating with the patient’s physician, we tried the scheduled recommended doses. Suzanne was on point and accurate on her recommendation- our patient’s symptoms are now well managed. Champion Rx team of Pharmacy techs, delivery personnel, and Pharmacists are a superb team. They have time and time again shown professionalism and reliability.”
