Welcome to the New AccuPax BlogLeave a Comment
This marks the first entry in our new AccuPax blog. We are starting this blog, and adding many features to our website in the weeks to come, as a service to our friends, customers and visitors to our site. AccuPax serves a unique group. Our customers live all over the country, with a wide range of ages, health conditions and abilities. But the one thing they all share is taking multiple medications on an ongoing basis for one or more chronic health conditions. Our hope is that our site and our blog can be a growing source of useful information to improve the lives of our customers and their caregivers. The AccuPax team is made up of experts on medication and medication management, for patients with chronic conditions. While we’ll be blogging about a variety of topics, our goal is to provide information focused on three main areas:
- Medication Management – We’ll provide tips to help you manage your medications, including things like reminders and coping with side effects.
- Healthy Living – We’ll provide information on living your best life including easy tips on making healthier choices.
- How to Save Time, Save Money and Enjoy Life More – Whether you’re a patient or a caregiver, coping with a chronic condition can be time consuming and expensive. We’ll provide tips and resources to help you save time and money, leaving you more of both to enjoy life.
Our second post is a great example of what we hope to achieve with our blog. To read it, you can scroll down to the post, written on May 18th, or click the following link: “For Caregivers and Patients: Online Support & Educational Resources.” It looks at websites where you can share support and information with others who have similar experiences. Several of the sites will even help you find local support groups that meet in your community. The article lists some great resources and I hope we’ve featured some that are new to you. There’s a well documented connection between a strong social support system and improved physical and mental health. These resources are a great way to find that social support with people who share many experiences & challenges in common.
We encourage you to leave comments. We’d love to hear your thoughts on our blog posts, in addition to the topics you’d like to see us cover in the future. Thanks for reading this far and we hope you enjoy the blog.
