Medication Reminder


Your loved one can receive medication reminders right on the touchscreen of the system. The reminder will include the name of each of the medications scheduled for this time, along with a picture, the dose, and instructions for how to take it. The reminders will display at the start of a scheduled time period for a medication, and will remain visible until the time expires, or your loved one presses a button indicating the meds have been taken. An optional alert tone can accompany the reminder.

Setting Up Medications

To include a medication:

  1. Add the Medication to the system.
  2. Add the Schedule for taking each medication. (e.g. dose, how many times per day, etc.) This will provide Medication Reminders when it's time to take a med.
  3. Set up optional Rules for medication compliance, to notify you or other caregivers, for example when a residents reports that medications have been taken, or when a resident does not report they've been taken.

You can view a summary of a resident's medication compliance by medication.

Viewing Medications on the Touchscreen
