Thinking about getting a Modern Pill Box
Aging Population needs a Modern Pill Box
A Modern Pill Box is needed for good health and quality of life. Every one needs a new modern pill box for their prescriptions. The exact opposite is true for those that are skipping medication. The outcome can be fatal. Medication Non-Compliance (not taking medication as directed by your healthcare provider) problems are world wide. Reported by the Department of Health and Human Services:
There are many reasons why seniors don’t take their medications as prescribed.
Seniors that have Problems with Vision
For seniors with vision problems who are not able to read the print on pill bottle labels as well as telling the difference between their different pills can be potentially fatal. Most modern pill boxes or modern pill organizers will come with braille markings. This will help with pill dosing, however it will not help with medication compliance. A Pill box with Large Size Print can be found at any pharmacy. You can also request the printed medicines labels to be made in a larger print.
Normal Memory Loss from Aging
Senior suffer from AIMMS (Age Induced Medication Mistakes). This is a normal part of aging. The irony is that as people age, the number and complexity of their medication grows. The need for a smart pill box, not a dumb pill holder get more and more important. If they take their pills as directed, most people can accept the most positive outcome.
Abnormal Memory Loss from Alzheimer’s or Dementia

The fact of the matter is, if they are unable to remember if they took their pills, they might take them again and again. Use a Smart Pill Organizer. There are many kinds of pill organizers available. Some pill box dispensers have a flashing and beeping reminder.
