Special Medication Packaging
If you take multiple medications, including over-the-counter medications, we can package them in a way that shows the time and date to take them. With our packaging, you will know if you took the right dose at the right time. See video below:
Private Pharmacist Meetings
When you are taking more than one kind of medicine, our pharmacist can have a private meeting with you to make sure that everything is safe and effective.
Long Term Care and Assisted Living Residents
Colony has programs to meet the needs of both long-term care and assisted living homes. These programs have been developed with regulatory considerations in mind. The simple design of the systems is easy for patients and caregivers.
Colony features a modern compounding lab where medications are customized to meet the specific needs of the patient (which includes pets). Custom compounding allows us to change dosages and strengths, eliminate preservatives and make special combination drugs. In collaboration with your prescriber, we can also change flavors, colors, and dosage forms to suit your needs. We have completed extensive compounding training with the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA).
