“As we grow older we take more medicines and our bodies may not react in the same way as when we were younger which raises questions. What happens if I take too many medicines, not enough medicine, the wrong medicines?”

Senior care pharmacists aim to help older adults identify risks, resolve, and prevent problems related to medications.
