Tarampa Lodge offers assistance to those residents who are unable to manage their medication and request our assistance. We offer assistance onsite only for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and 8pm medications. Any assistance outside of these hours may incur additional charges. We use a blister pack system and store medications in a secure area in a locked trolley. Assistance with medication is given as per the doctors instructions. Records of medication taken are recorded on a signing sheet. For residents choosing to look after their own medication, they must show they can keep the medication in an appropriate, safe area by providing a lockable device to store the medication, maintain the secured device at all times and show they are sensible and safe in the use of their medication. Any doubts from staff will be directed to the resident’s doctor.
