EARTH CITY, Mo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optime Care, a nationally recognized pharmacy, distribution and patient management organization maximizing therapeutic opportunities for the treatment of orphan and rare disorders, is pleased to recognize November as National Family Caregivers Month and points to the benefits of Optime Care’s patient-first approach for supporting family caregivers and patients through counseling, guidance and education based upon patient and caregiver needs. Caregivers and patients benefit from this approach to optimizing the therapeutic value of a specialty drug by ensuring prescription accuracy, compliance and adherence to treatment.
“For the tireless army of caregivers supporting patients with a rare disease, this is an important time to recognize their unique, important role and help to raise awareness about the complex caregiving issues involved in day-to-day care of people who face unique challenges,” says Donovan Quill, president and CEO, Optime Care. “Our specialty Rx pharmacists provide ongoing assistance and education that helps caregivers to manage the clinical and non-clinical issues associated with rare disease.”
Research shows that caregiving can take a significant emotional, physical and financial toll. With nearly half of all caregivers over age 50, many are vulnerable to a decline in their own health.
“Coordinated support services, like those offered by Optime Care, can reduce caregiver depression, anxiety and stress,” adds Quill. “Our programs are enabling caregivers to provide care longer, which avoids or delays the need for costly and unwanted institutional care.”
