The medication dispenser is a great way for caregivers and family members to assist clients that need a reminder to take their medication. With 28 slots, the machine can be filled up weekly or even monthly as needed. The medication is placed into the refillable plastic cassette and locked so that only the person refilling the medication is able to change the times and pills. Setting the prescription times is very easy and similar to setting an alarm clock. Once the system is set up, an alarm will signal and a buzzer will sound when it is time for the client to take the medication. When the slot pops open, if the medication is not removed from the drawer within a programmed time, the buzzer will continue to go off until the medication is taken and slot is closed.
