Essential if lots of tablets to be taken.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AUTOMATIC PILL DISPENSER /REMINDER - CLEAR LID- GREAT VALUE
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.
