Getting older may mean more of a reliance on a cocktail of prescription drugs and supplements to get you through your day. A little help in keeping track of your daily medicines can go a long way! Whether you are managing your own absent-mindedness or taking care of a relative, medication reminders are one of the most useful aspects of daily medical care. Luckily there are various products on the market to assist you in your organisation from pill remainder dispensers, alarm watches and smartphone apps.
We have put together a list of products that we think will enable you to manage your medicines more easily.
Pill Box Alarms
The Timercap is easy to use with no alarms & nothing to program or set. Just close the TimerCap and the stopwatch automatically counts up the seconds, minutes, and hours.
The TimerCap organiser automatically shows the time when the pill bottles were last closed, helping you to avoid dosage mistake or potential overdose.

The TimerCaps are fully portable and help you easily organise your pill medication to fit in your pocket, purse, medicine cabinet or travel bag. Taking medication can now be anxiety-free and simple.
If the Timercep doesn't match your current medication bottle don't worry. The caps do come with bottles. Just peel off the label, place it on the new bottle and now your protected. Two Timercaps are included in the purchase.
