UFS offers Dose Administration Aids. Dose administration aids organise doses of tablets and capsules according to when they should be taken and are well sealed, tamper-evident devices. They make it easy to know when to take the medication, whether you have taken it and also help to ensure the medications are taken in the correct prescribed doses. The use of a Dose Administration Aid can help take the worry out of managing your medications. They are particularly useful for people who need to take medications several times a day.
A Webster Pak is an easy and safe weekly medication management system. Each Webster Pak contains one week’s worth of medication, divided into four individual time slots per day. Each Webster Pak has a current list of medication printed on the back, including the time(s) that each medication is taken.
Some of the benefits for having your medications packed for you include:
- Easy to use medication blister packs
- Easy to check to see if medication has been taken
- Available in high contrast colours for people with low vision
- Reduces errors in your medication
- Record of all current medications on pack
- Eliminates stress and time needed to manage your own medications
- Convenient and portable
- Peace of mind for family and loved ones
- Value for money
The Webster Pak combines all your prescription medication into a single blister per dose time. We can even include your daily vitamins.
Your medication pack can be delivered right to your door in the Ballarat, Bacchus Marsh and Melton areas every week by our delivery drivers, or can be collected from any UFS Pharmacy.
Are you going away on holidays?
Simply advise us of your upcoming holiday, and we will ensure you have enough Webster Paks to take away with you.
Are you currently in hospital?
Take your Webster Pak with you to hospital, or in an emergency situation, inform them that you are a Webster Pak client through UFS Pharmacy. The hospital will liaise with us regarding current medication list and advise of any changes to medication at the time of your discharge. We will cease your Webster Pak while you are in hospital, and fill a new Webster Pak for delivery or collection at the time of discharge, incorporating any changes that have been made to your medication during your hospital stay.
