Medication Dispensing Service
Riverside's Medication Dispensing Service ensures a 98.6 percent compliance average nationally (based on Philips national research data), the highest of any medication dispensing service available today. This service is available to help you take the right medications at the right time.
The dispensing unit can hold up to 60 doses of medications at one time, stored in covered pill cups. Your caregiver or a qualified Riverside home care nurse will periodically load the dispensing device, so all you need to worry about is listening for the voice announcement telling you when it's time to take your next dose. The service also has caregivers in mind—it alerts them if a dose is about to be missed and allows them to track compliance through a web-based program. This user-friendly, affordable system can save you and your loved ones from the dangerous results of missed medication and incorrect dosages.
