Villages of Lake Highlands is one of a handful of senior healthcare facilities in the Dallas area which features a small on-site pharmacy. The service is facilitated by a computer-controlled dispensary stocked with medications most commonly prescribed to seniors. The service is connected to a remote pharmacist who fills prescriptions written by a resident’s medical doctor. The primary benefit to our seniors is that when a medicine is needed in most cases it can be readily obtained in as little as fifteen minutes. This can be particularly important for post-acute surgical residents who may have been delayed in their initial arrival from a slow hospital discharge process and in need of pain management medications.
