Hi all, I am hoping that somebody can help. My grandmother has Alzheimers, which appears to be advancing quite quickly. At the moment, she is maintaining her independence and living in her own home. As with many people her age (85) she is required to take various medications each day. The problem is how do we ensure she takes the right medication at the right time. At present we are using a pill dispenser that we put the relevant medicine in for the relevant day, and then telephone her to ensure that it is taken. However, we are now finding that this is not working as it should, and she sometimes does not take the medicine, simply forgetting, even after a phone call reminder. Other times we find that she has taken 2 days worth, or that in her confusion, all the pills for the week are scattered on the table. Has anyone any experience with the Pivotell Automatic Pill Dispenser, or a similar product, or could they offer any advice as to how to deal with this issue?I should add that my mother is her main carer, but due to distance and work commitments cannot see my grandmother every day. Thanks.
