Diabetes Care

Our Certified Diabetes Educator can help you manage your diabetes, check your blood glucose monitor, and make sure your other medications are organized.

Controlling glucose levels is critical to prevent long-term complications related to diabetes, such as problems with your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. However, a large number of patients do not reach their blood glucose targets. With long-term counselling and care, we help these patients develop individual strategies so that they can reach their blood glucose goals and live in excellent health.

Senior Care

Seniors have unique needs with their medications. Our pharmacist can help explain and organize your medication plan.

Aging changes the way our bodies react to medication. Many seniors also take several medications simultaneously. Inappropriate medication use can cause problems like unpleasant side effects. This is why we give seniors extra care at View Street Pharmacy.

By carefully evaluating and monitoring our patients’ drug regimens, we identify and prevent problems. We help fine-tune drug therapy so that you can get the best possible results. We promote healthy aging and help patient continue to live on their own. We are dedicated to helping people live better and longer lives by enhancing the quality of care.

The Senior Care pharmacist is your own personal health care consultant. Here are just some of the services available:

  • Comprehensive medication review by appointment
  • Ongoing clinical consultation and home pharmacy care
  • Health management counselling
  • Disposal of outdated medications
  • Home visits when needed

Compounding

Can't get your medication in the right dose or format? We can help. Compounding is a good option for people with unique needs, allergies, children, or pets.

We specially prepare medications when the commercially available format does not meet your needs. We can customize the dose and format (such as capsules, lollipops, gummy bears). This can be helpful for people with special medication needs, or allergies to food dyes. It’s also helpful for children and pets.

  • HRT cream
  • Capsules
  • Suppositories
  • Pet medications
