Group homes play an essential role in communities across Ontario. One of the many tasks they manage is ensuring that the people living in these homes have the support they need, including medications, medicine, and health care. This is why it’s important for group homes to partner with a specialty pharmacy, But not all specialty pharmacies are the same. They offer different types of products and services. If you’re a group home and looking to partner with a local pharmacy, here are 4 qualities you should consider serving your group home community:

1. Specialization

Group homes are specialized facilities. To get the level of care and understanding that you require, it’s essential for you to partner with a specialized pharmacy that specializes in working with group homes and other similar communities.
