Do you think it’s not a big deal to help manage your parent’s medication? Think again! According to the American Society on Aging and the American Society of Consultant Pharmacist Foundation there are
125, 000 deaths each year due to medication non adherence.
Medication nonadherence can be a major problem for any age group, especially to your parents who are prescribed multiple medications due to health conditions. The health consequences are extremely harmful or even deadly.
In an effort to improve medication adherence you, as their son or daughter will organize medications using simple pillboxes and contacting them daily via phone to make sure they’re taking their medications on time.
This daily task can be overwhelming for both yourself and for your parent. This task can overtake your life. From the perspective of your parent, it may seem that you do not trust or feel they are competent to manage their own medications.
As a solution there are several companies offering many different types of reminder devices such as watches, pillboxes with timers and automatic pill dispensers. One unique item e-pill, LLC is offering what is called the CADEX 12-Alarm Medication & Medical ID watch.
