If you or a loved one has a lot of medicine to take daily, you may already be familiar with MedCenter. They make pill organizer systems, like the ones seen in the top photos, that can hold up to four separate doses for up to 31 days, depending on the system. If the patient has memory problems, a caregiver can load up the medicine in the organization system, but that still may not be enough to help him remember to actually take the medicine. With the Pill Reminder Talking Alarm Clock, you won’t have to worry that your patient won’t remember what a buzzer going off is a reminder for, because the clock can actually announce reminders like “Good morning! Please take your morning pills for the 20th. BEEP BEEP BEEP”. The clock will track up to four reminders per day. With the Your Minder Personal Recording Alarm Clock, you can record up to 6 messages that will remind him to take medicine, walk the dog, or whatever is necessary. The clocks are $39.95 for the standard model and $49.95 for the personal-messages version. The pill minders vary in price from $20 to $110, depending on the number of days, compartments/day, and other features. Learn more at MedCenter.
