The staff team at our Coneyhurst Lodge residential service in Worthing recently implemented a new medication system to help support Andrew (who recently moved into the service and has Cerebral Palsy) to manage his medications.
Chris, the service manager, said: “Since the new system has been in place Andrew has needed little support from staff and is now able to monitor his medications on a daily and weekly basis. This is great to see as it has truly helped boost his independence.”
Andrew further echoed this by saying: “I am really happy about this medication system, I have never seen this before and it’s great as the medication is already potted (in the right day) for me and makes it easy to look after it myself and keep track of what I have to take. This has helped me increase my independence and I want to take it with me wherever I go it’s that good.”
