Independent Living

For those residents who can manage their own medication regimen, PCA assists with a simple and clearly labeled pharmacy medication system that fits well within daily schedules and minimizes the hassle of managing medications.

At Home

The number of people who simply require ongoing medication at home is ever increasing. PCA continues to work closely with both hospitals and rehabilitation centers for a continued care approach to this growing resident need.
