Pill dispener review
It has helped considerably with controlling the amount of consumption.
Love this dispenser but I do not use the batteries with it. Mom likes to do it herself! She is 95! I actually have 2 so I have alittle more leeway in filling her prescriptions - a whole month!
auto pill dispenser
I bought this for my mom who was having issues with remembering to take her meds or taking them too many times. While she didn't like our "getting into her business" she has been taking her meds with this device as she is supposed to and we have already seen an improvement in her memory/mental issues. I would like for the alarm to be louder, but as long as it's in the same room as the tv, it can be heard. Ordering one for my dad now too.
I purchased this product and set it up for my elderly mother who lives alone. She has trouble remembering to take her medication at the proper time. This product is simple for her to use and she loves it. It is small enough that she can take it with her if needed and the alarm lets her know when to take her next dose.
WORKS GREAT! SO CONVENIENT!
I have already recommended to several people
I recommended to several people already at our Doctors office
Complicated to set up but great after that
The set-up process is not easy but once it is all done, it works great. It kept my Dad from taking his pills multiple times after his stroke. I like the clear top to know what he has done with a quick look at the top.
I do like the unit very much. I recommend it for use.
i will be returning it, 2weeks of use 3 filling anf lock is broken
I would NOT buy this product again.
I bought this pill dispenser for my mom who has dementia and is not able to manage her medications herself. It's a great concept and when it is working, it's awesome. The problem is the locking mechanism breaks easily. In 4 months I'm having to get my 3rd dispenser.
Electronic pill dispenser life saver
I highly recommend this to anyone with a parent who struggles taking meds accurately. This dispenser has up to 6 alarms that can be set for each day and has given me peace of mind that my mom is taking her meds as prescribed twice a day.
This product is easy to set up, lots of options for dispensing medication and gives you piece of mind that a loved one is properly taking their medications.
This generally is a very good item. It does have at least one serious flaw I never thought about before my ailing mother-in-law started using it. Turns out she was worried about hearing the new sound she was unfamiliar with. She simply removed the batteries, effectively stopping the alarm, and unfortunately the whole machine. Since the pills, settings, and all other aspects of this machine are locked to protect the integrity of the system, it suprised me that the battery compartment is not lockable as well. Buyer Beware!
This is an amazing help for my elderly 79 year old Mother who has dementia. Now, I can rest easy that she is reminded to take her meds and with the lock...she cannot get into her medicine and rearrange doses, as she has in the past. Wonderful product! I definitely would recommend this!!!
Peace of Mind
This is great for peace of mind when allowing an elderly person to be responsible for taking their own medications. I had a little glitch the first time it was used...I think the tray must not have been aligned quite right as the tray would not move to dispense the next dose. Since then it has been awesome. Even my 96 year old father thinks it's great! Set up is fairly straight forward. Definitely recommend!
Exactly what we needed
My elderly father has to take a variety of medications at 4 different intervals throughout the day - and keeping to a schedule was very important for drug efficacy. Although we prepped and sorted the pills in a pill sorter, he and my mother could not keep up with the schedule, and sometimes missed a few pills from the sorter. I had no idea anything like this existed until I searched for it, but it has completely solved our problem. We still sort the pills - but the timer, with loud alarm and light, keeps my dad right on schedule. And it contains an entire week's worth of medication! The tipping of the device to pour pills into his hand, has removed the issue of overlooking some pills. Best $$ we've spent on improving his care in a long time. We received the updated version with the clear top and the large digital display. My teenage niece programmed it very quickly. We use a traditional pill sorter to do the initial sorting of the pills, and then transfer them into the device - once a week. (The alarm has even helped my mom keep her own meds (many fewer) on a better schedule - because it acts as a reminder first thing in the morning.) We have been using it now for 3 months.
Proceed with caution
I canât say much about the product because I never got to use it. Buyer beware!! Do not purchase from Gizmo Creek. Product came used and missing pieces. Three batteries were already in the product ( it takes four) The packaging was very unprofessional And messy with someone elses mailer inside the box. Walmart needs to hold their marketplace vendors to a higher standard. Iâd give zero stars if I could
Great for the elderly to remind to take their pills on time
Lock broke in 2 weeks. Not well made.
