  • Try setting up a pillbox in which you can put a week’s worth of pills, sorted by day.

  • Check the pillbox every day to gauge whether the person can keep up with their medication regimen.

  • If a box alone isn’t enough, look into a system that uses a phone’s or computer’s internal clock to remind the person to take a pill.

  • Set your own watch or computer to remind you to call and talk the person through taking medication.
