Advanced Patient Care (APC), founded in 2008 by Michele Arling, RPh, was acquired by Symbria Rx Services of Woodridge in 2013.
APC was established from the beginning to serve assisted living and independent living providers according to a highly-customized and successful model that Michele developed more than a decade ago in Virginia.
Before the company ever dispensed a single pill, our staff spent many hours in senior care facilities, talking to staff, talking to families, talking to residents. We participated in health fairs, performed chart reviews, met with physicians, and spoke at family nights. We reached the same conclusion that senior-living community management teams have: Few pharmacies know senior care the way we do.
Our pharmacists are specialists trained in senior-care pharmacy. We have experienced consultants for chart reviews, family and physician consults, and participation in health fair and wellness programs. Our focus is always on reducing the resident's number of medications and their cost.
We have the most extensive pharmacy program available to independent and assisted living in the country, and it will grow more sophisticated, more efficient, and more effective with the resources of Symbria behind us. As Symbria Rx Services, we look forward to continuing to develop and deliver leading-edge pharmacy solutions for assisted living and independent living.
