4.0 out of 5 stars Good If You Can See Well 24 Oct 2011
By DiL
Verified Purchase
This product is excellent for keeping medication locked and only available at the appropriate time. However, my mother is partially sighted and found it very difficult to get the pills out. The slot is not big enough to get her finger in so she had to turn the unit upside down to get the pill out (and you have to do that to turn off the alarm). As she couldn't see where the hole was when turned upside down to catch the pills they often ended up on the floor. We tried giving her a bowl to empty them in to but that didn't work either, so we have reverted to a manual tablet box, but that does run the risk of pills being taken when they shouldn't be. Great design if you can see well but it would be better if the dispenser hole was slightly bigger to get fingers in to "pick out" the pills.

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but effective pill box. 5 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
You don't expect to have to pay () for a pill box, but it has proved invaluable for my elderly mother who constantly forgot to take her pills, with occasional dire results. The instructions are slightly out of date/quilter with my actual experience of programming but not so much as to make it difficult to set up. Occasional unexpected error messages were a bit perplexing at first, but now we take it in our stride.
Altogether I would recommend this for someone who cannot manage with ordinary pill boxes, even alarmed pill boxes, this one goes on pestering you with the alarm until you have tipped the pills out of it.
Now how do I make sure that the pills get from her hand to her mouth???? ;-()

5.0 out of 5 stars Medealert Pill Dispenser 10 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
Bought for 89yr old Mum who has early stage dementia, this item has prevented her taking her tablets on the wrong day and also stops her taking two days meds on one day. Excellent for someone who needs supervision for these type of everyday tasks.

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful except let down by day discs 9 Dec 2012
By LW7
A life saver for me & my carers not having to remind me. You can add lights flashing & selection of reminder sounds for which drugs to take & doesn't let any other slots open until that time. Only thing that lets it down is the cardboard discs (with options for one slot a day/2 slots etc) are meant to fold over (which it doesn't do well) & it makes it look cheap which is not in keeping with the rest of the dispenser. Hopefully the makers will fix that in time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful product 13 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
This dispenser has definitely helped an elderly relative with their medication; more often than not the pills are taken. It has, however, jammed once for no obvious reason. You might wish to consider the opaque lid version to counter any confusion over the sight of all the full and empty chambers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tip top bit of kit! 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
I have written a pretty concise review already on one of these. I would make an extra comment in that this one has a see through lid which makes it possible to see what is still in the dispenser. The second one I have bought came with an obscured lid which, having had the clear lid, I would not have chosen. However, these are a fantastic bit of kit, good value, and we are very much more relaxed knowing that my elderly mother is getting her medication as and when she should. 10 out of 10! I can see I'll be using one myself in a few years time!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential if lots of tablets to be taken. 7 Dec 2012
By Dave
Verified Purchase
This an essential item if a person has to take multiple tablets during the day.
My 87 yer old Father in law has dementia. He has to take multiple tablets twice a day. The flashing alarms are set for 8am and 8pm. Once the alarm goes off, the next set of tablets are accessable. He sees the light and picks up the machine to get the tablets in to his hand and takes them. The alarm then stops. He can remember this routine. When the next tablets are due the machine rotates, the alarm goes off and he can take the tablets. We can monitor if he misses tablets as the machine moves thenm on, unde the cover, so he can not access them. This enables us to see if he has taken his tablets.
The machine is simple to load.
The on thing that needs changing if a screw down cover for the battery compartment. If he sees the battery replacement indictor lights, he tries to replace the batteries himself, which looses the timings. We have mentioned this to the supplier and they have fed it back to the mnufacturer.

Even so, an essential item for someone who need to take tablets regularly.
