January...and getting Back to Basics

Walsh’s Pharmacy has maintained that people within our community deserve the best health care services, programs and advice that we can provide. Sometimes the best medicine is simply a good dose of knowledge.

January has always been a month for fresh starts, renewal and getting back to basics; for committing to lifestyle improvement, and committing to taking better care of ourselves…health-wise, that is. It’s the same at Walsh’s Pharmacy.

As we begin our 62nd year of providing health-related services, Walsh’s Pharmacy will be focusing on delivering even broader health and wellness programs to our patients and customers.

F or example, coming in January, Walsh’s Pharmacy is launching an important product and service addition to our Health & Lifestyle Centre. Call, or visit us in-store for details.

National Non-Smoking Week starts January 19th. If you’re serious about quitting, and are interested in a Smoking Cessation Program, make an appointment with a Walsh’s pharmacist to discuss the options available.

Interested in learning more about your prescription and non-prescription medications? Ask about scheduling a medication MedsCheck with one of our pharmacists.

Need information about your glucometer, or blood pressure monitor?  Check with one of our pharmacy staff members who can provide guidance and proper use instruction.

You can also check your blood pressure regularly using our free in-store Blood Pressure Kiosk; and if you’re interested in learning about some healthy numbers*, ask one of our pharmacists…or your health care practitioner.

Haven’t had your flu shot yet? According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, flu season runs from November to April. Walsh’s Pharmacy provides flu shots…check in-store for schedule.

Sticking to a healthy lifestyle goal can be difficult; life’s activity sometimes gets in the way. Recall those New Year’s resolutions?

If you’re having difficulty living up to those health-related resolutions, or aren’t able to eat a healthy and balanced diet, you might benefit from taking a daily multi-vitamin or additional supplement(s). You also might not be aware, but taking certain medications can also deplete the body of certain nutrients. Ask your Walsh’s Pharmacy pharmacist about the effects of nutrient depletion, and how it might affect you. As with any health regimen, however, you should always check with your health care practitioner. 

When you visit Walsh’s Pharmacy, you’re in good hands. We can answer your questions about the products and services we sell, as well as provide answers about the health and wellness of you and your family…but then, that’s to be expected from a good neighbour- we’ve been a part of the neighbourhood since 1952.

You can be confident that we have the knowledge and expertise you’re looking for, when you’re looking for health-related help and direction. Always check with your healthcare practitioner or your Walsh’s pharmacist before embarking on any health care regimen.
