How can seniors remember to take medications?

It can be difficult to keep track of all of the medication we need to take. Particularly when you have to take them at different times throughout the day! Alert1’s MedReady Medication Reminder will remind you take your medication so you don’t have to worry about forgetting! You can set reminders for up to four times a day. With it customized to the exact times you need, you will never miss a dose again!

It is estimated that 50% of prescriptions dispensed annually are not taken correctly, and 30% of all hospital admissions for people over 65 are directly attributable to not taking medication properly. Don’t be a part of that 30%! Alert1’s medication reminder is an easy solution to prevent an emergency hospital trip. It’s a small precaution that can help save your life.

Alert1’s medication reminder is tamper proof, and only dispenses the medication seniors need. Fill the pill tray, and then lock the lid closed. When it is time for the medication to be taken, the internal tray will rotate and the alarm will ring. Simply slide open the compartment for easy access to the correct pill compartment.

Our medication reminder is very simple to use. The medication reminder has an extra-large LED display and is as easy to set up as a digital clock. The pill tray is simple to fill and switch out, and the 48-hour rechargeable back-up battery ensures the unit works whether there is a power outage or you need to travel for the day.

Taking your scheduled medicine does not have to be difficult. Reduce medication worries and help prevent dangerous missed doses and overdosing with Alert1’s medication reminder.
