Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy #287

Brian Dillman

 

Every aspect of the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy is designed with your health in mind. "Your Health. Our Priority" is not just a slogan to them--it is the reason their pharmacist-owners choose to practice under the Medicine Shoppe brand. A dedicated focus on health care products and services coupled with a warm, welcoming environment make the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy's award winning concept the pharmacy choice of Canadians from coast to coast. 

Our Trusted Member Brian Dillman is the Pharmacist/Owner of the 35 Baker Drive location in Dartmouth. Mr. Dillman’s Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy is a Community Outreach Pharmacy for the Canadian Diabetes Association and he fund raises for Mental Health organizations. Brian is a patient-focused pharmacist who cares about his community and the patients he serves, either close to home or abroad.  

 

Nova Scotians are truly fortunate to live in a part of the world where health care is often taken for granted. Getting medical aid is considered a “given.”  People in other parts of the world are not so lucky. Brian Dillman is working to change that.  In 2010, when he heard students from the Halifax Christian Academy were travelling to Guatemala, he provided immunizations to all the students travelling at cost. The following year he provided medical supplies for a group from the Faith Baptist Church that were travelling to Ecuador. Then in 2013, Mr. Dillman sponsored his wife/business partner/fellow pharmacist Jill to travel to an orphanage in Baja Mexico where she served on a medical team that provided much needed medical care to the orphans and well as people in the surrounding area.  He has also donated medical supplies and medications for  a number of groups who travelled to Honduras as part of the Global Brigades Medical and Dental Team. On one trip, the team treated 1,200 people.  

 

In 2014, for his exceptional

contributions to his community

and beyond, Brian Dillman

received the Distinguished

Service Award from the

Pharmacy Association of

Wouldn’t it be nice to hire a funeral planner who would work for you and not have a vested interest in what a funeral home sells? Someone who would put your interests and needs first. 

 

Life Journey Funeral Planning does just that.

 

​Life Journey Funeral Planning is an independent funeral planning service hired by and operating on behalf of the family. The independent funeral planner advises and guides the family in planning or pre-planning for this critical life event known as a funeral.​​

In Canada Nova Scotia has the dubious honour of being the highest place in Canada to buy a traditional funeral and it is also the third highest place in Canada to purchase a cremation according to a 2012 Everest survey of funeral costs in Canada. 

Having an independent funeral planner at their side helps families make better decisions. Decisions not based on grief but based on informed choices and options to meet their needs. 

Progressive funeral homes appreciate having an independent adviser with the family just as good realtors respect customers hiring an independent home inspector.

The best way to plan funerals is to plan in advance.

Life Journey Funeral Planning believes families should plan for a funeral the same way as any major life event:

 

  • Plan for it in advance.

  • Get good advice

  • Examine all options

  • Budget

  • Shop to get good value for your money.

  • Make an informed decision.

  • Execute your plan.

Life Journey Funeral Planning is owned and operated by Ian MacDonald.  There is a need for families to reclaim the purpose of funerals. A celebration of life should shape grief to be more healing, and helpful without over spending. 

​Life Journey Funeral Planning is Ian's solution. A solution that empowers the family at a time they need it most.  Ian brings more than 15 years experience and compassion in the funeral planning industry.
