As part of building awareness for self-care and supporting healthy living worldwide, Jones is proud to join the International Self-Care Foundation (ISF) and Consumer Health Products (CHP) Canada to celebrate International Self-Care Day. Organizations across the globe recognize and celebrate this annual event to raise awareness about self-care as an important part of our daily lives. From keeping up with personal hygiene needs to taking care of chronic diseases, self-care is key to leading a happy and healthy lifestyle.
This year, the event takes place on July 24 with the theme “Feel Good, 7/24,” focusing on the seven pillars of self-care: health literacy, self-awareness, physical activity, healthy eating, risk avoidance, good hygiene and the optimal use of health products and services. Each pillar is an important part of making sure you are able to live the healthy lifestyle you deserve.
We practice self-care when using medicines and other health products responsibly to prevent disease and treat ailments. This includes ensuring you take the right medications, vitamins and supplements at the right time, in the right dose.
Several key studies suggest blister packaging and calendarized packaging can be effective tools to improve medication adherence. In fact, Jones offers a range of adherence packaging solutions– available at pharmacies across the country – to help you manage medication and supplement regimes accurately and consistently, particularly for seniors and those with chronic conditions requiring multiple medications and complex treatments.
Ask your pharmacist today about multi-dose adherence packaging from Jones to help you manage your prescribed medications, over-the-counter products, and vitamins and supplements in one convenient package, or contact us for more information.
