Pill boxes have compartments in which you can efficiently label the medications, the right dosage to take, and times to take. Go online to gather information on a) dispenser devices that automatically separate medications by day at certain times and b) reminder devices (audibly, visually) that prompt the senior into taking pills at timed intervals. There are also devices that detect whether a senior has ingested the pills. If the medication is not taken within a predetermined time, an alarm is sounded. Cell phones also can provide reminders when medication must be taken.
