With advanced age there is an increase in multiple disease states, with a consequent increase in the number of medicines taken. The elderly therefore need regular review. Home Medication Review (HMR) Program was pioneered by Australian Government in the year 2001. HMR is a collaborative service involving the general practitioner, pharmacist and the patient. This study was carried out to assess medication taken, adherence. The main objectives of this study are to collect demography and check disease prevalence, study medicine use and to assess medication adherence in geriatric population. Results: 102 patients of age greater than 60 years participated in the study. 48 were females (47.05%) and 54 were males (52.95%).
