Struggling With Your Meds?
A Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist Can Help
Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist (BCGP)
"Senior Care" Pharmacist
In the medical field Board certification is recognized as an important part of the quality assurance process. Board certification in geriatric pharmacy shows that a pharmacist
understands the complex medication needs of older adults with multiple comorbidities and geriatric syndromes.
A BCGP is an expert in long term management of chronic disease states (hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, alzheimer, dementia, parkinsons disease, etc.) beyond just prescription medications.
Why do I need a Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist?
As you age some diseases affect elderly patients differently than younger adults. Liver and kidney functions changes with age resulting in altered drug metabolism. Physiological changes such as thinning of skin and increased body fat may also affect how medications are absorbed and distributed in the body.
"No two elderly patients are alike and the addition of a Senior Care Pharmacist to your healthcare team will ensure that each medication therapy is appropriate, monitored and cost effective."
