My mother, Who lives alone with part time care providers, has difficulty with severe short term memory loss, confusing days, times etc. The biggest worry I had was the fact that she was taking pills from her large monthly pill box on the wrong days at incorrect times or mainly not taking the medications at all.
The 'Med-E-Lert' solved that problem for her, it took a few days to get use to the device alerts etc. but now she takes it everywhere, and we know now she is following the Doctor's prescribed consumption.
I did observe that some of the soft gel type pills tend to stick in the pill pocket, so Mom gives it a good shake and the do fall out into ger hands.
You cannot find this kind of peace of mind for the money. I anticipate getting another if this one wears out and eventually one for myself. -- Peter
The next best thing was the price!!! I could not believe the price of these types of products. Why pay hundreds of dollars when this one works GREAT. -- Softmystic
It's compact, not so hard to set up, has a loud enough sound, and it suits my need perfectly.
My mother is 85 and is hard oh hearing. She hears it from any room in the house.
The only problem we gave encountered is the fact that she takes a lot of medicines and on a couple of occasions a pill stuck at the bottom and they were missed. But I now fill it a little different putting the larger pills in first and the more important pills in last. No problems since. -- Sandi
Works well for my mother who can't remember to take her meds on time. Now we just have to be sure she takes them. -- Sharon Schneider
Thank you very much! -- beadrookie
It takes a little concentration to get the box set up right the first time but after that, it is a breeze to fill and lock each week. -- L. Cook
