Medication Management is one of those major issues that
will stop it being possible for a Senior to be by themselves. If a Senior forgets to take their pills on time and every
time they can rapidly deteriorate physically. It is also likely that they will be at substantially greater fall risk
due to vertigo or other side effects of medication mismanagement.
there is a solution. The Maya pillbox from Medminder is the World's first cellular network connected pillbox. When it
is time to take a medication the individual compartment lights up and flashes, after 15 minutes it starts to beep, 15 minutes
more passes and it starts to send emails and also physically calls a cell or land-line telephone. After the fact a family
member or Caregiver can go on-line and confirm that the pills were removed from the box.
