Carers are often the people who:-
Drop off and collect prescriptions for another person.
Collect medications for someone who has a condition (e.g. dementia) which suggests that they wouldn't be able to get by on their own.
Buy incontinence products or other items associated with ill health, frailty or disability.
Ask for advice about someone else’s medication, health condition or disability rather than their own.
Sit in on a Medicines Use Review and give the impression that they are main 'manager' of your patient's medications.
May seem to be in a hurry to get back home because they don't want to leave someone on their own for very long.
Visit the pharmacy with someone who appears to need their support.
May look tired, depressed or anxious when the person they usually accompany isn't with them.
Take delivery of medications from the pharmacy delivery driver.
Regularly buy over-the-counter medicines for another person.
