Alzheimer’s disease, a form of dementia that affects millions of individuals globally, can be a complex and emotional journey, both for those diagnosed and their loved ones or caregivers. It can lead to memory loss, confusion, and difficulty in performing even the simplest daily tasks.
One of the most critical aspects of managing Alzheimer’s is managing medications safely and effectively, ensuring the right doses are taken at the right times. For caregivers, this responsibility can be overwhelming, yet innovative solutions like Webster-pak medication packs are crucial tools that not only simplify medication management but also empower patients to maintain their independence for longer.” says Pharmacist Danielle Martusciello.
Gerard Stevens AM, Founder and Managing Director of Webstercare, the company behind the Webster-pak, shares his perspective; “Helping with medication can be hard and time-consuming for caregivers. Many feel unsure as their role changes. Families might not know when or how to take over medication tasks, especially as the disease gets worse. Webster-paks do more than just organise medicine – they help Alzheimer’s patients manage their health and keep their independence and dignity. Our aim is to make taking medication easier and with greater assurance. We want patients and their loved ones to have more quality time together and peace of mind with medication.”
For over 40 years, the Webster-pak – an Australian-invented and owned medication system – has brought relief to thousands of families.
