Best Daily Medication Reminder
Tabtime Super 8 Daily Pill Reminder
Pill reminders can often be difficult to hear for elderly users, and won't include enough space for all your pills – the Tabtime Super 8 Daily Pill Reminder was designed to solve these problems. It's designed to be easy to use for everyone, and features an easy-open magnetic hatch that's ideal for those with weak, shaky hands or Parkinson's disease.
It emits a loud audio alarm with a flashing red LED light to ensure it's heard, and all alarms cease once the lid is opened. It's also made with large, spaced-out buttons, making it as easy to use as can be.
Portable and Simple Medication Reminder
Tab Timer Pill Alarm Reminder
Many people won't require an advanced pill dispenser, but instead need a simple and reliable reminder. The Tab Timer Pill Alarm Reminder is just that, providing a compact, convenient and simple reminder that can sound up to eight daily alarms based on your needs.
Controlled by three large buttons, this handy reminder can fit easily into any pocket or purse, and can be hung, stood or stuck just about anywhere for convenience. With a loud volume alarm and a visual alert, you won't find a simpler, more reliable option.
Lockable Pill Dispenser for Dementia Sufferers

When a loved one is suffering from dementia, it's not only important to ensure they take their medication on time, it's crucial to make sure they don't take too much. The PivoTell MK3 Automatic Pill Dispenser can be programmed to provide up to 28 reminders each day, notifying the user via a flashing light and audible alarm.
It keeps all other pills locked away and out of sight – ideal for users suffering from dementia, depression, or any other condition where overdosing would be a concern. With audible and visual alarms as well as available spare keys, this dispenser provides complete peace of mind.
Best Medication Reminder for the Hearing Impaired
Vibralite Mini Vibrating Reminder Watch
Many pill reminders and medication dispensers use a loud alert to notify their users, something that will fall short for the hearing impaired. The Vibralite Mini Vibrating Reminder Watch issues a discreet vibrating alert to the user, and can be worn around the wrist to ensure you're reminded at any time, anywhere.
Available in a range of colours, it can be programmed to provide up to 12 different reminders, and includes a repeat countdown option for time sensitive medication or hydration reminders.

Whatever your reason, medication reminders and pill dispensers are always a good idea to have on hand when medication must be taken at certain times throughout the day.
