How to Make Sure Aging Parents Are Well Cared For

  1. How to Make Sure Aging Parents Are Well Cared For Kim Hegwood 22:06

“Yeah. I mean, you can use the old-fashioned pill box, right? Set it up every Sunday. And that works for seniors who just take their pills. You know they’re going to take them. You trust, they’re taking them. What if you don’t know if they actually take their pills or not? What if they need to be reminded and you don’t want to have to call them every day, three times a day about what they’re going to need to take? Maybe you have some pills that are narcotics that someone else in the house might sneak out of that pill box. That’s where some electronic digital medication management systems can come into play.” Benjamin Surmi
