According to VRI’s website, a large percentage of older people do not take their medications correctly. They miss doses, they overdose, they take them at the wrong time.
If your elderly loved one lives alone, the MedReady Pill Dispenser looks is worth looking at. Basically, you or a professional caregiver load the device with the patient’s meds. You schedule the dosage, days and times. When it is time for the patient to take his or her medications the device dispenses them and sounds an alarm. The alarm keeps going until the dose is taken out.
Of course, no device is perfect for everyone. If you have a senior citizen in your life who is serious about their health, they’d probably welcome this help.
I have no personal experience with the device but if you do, please be sure to leave a comment. I’d love to hear what you think about it.
