MedMinder Medication Dispenser Helps Seniors Stay Safe

Assisted Living Technologies is proud to introduce a state-of-the-art Medication Management and Reminder System called MedMinder. MedMinder provides technologies to enable seniors to maintain their independence and avoid long-term care facilities and hospitalization.

Adverse drug reactions and unintended overdoses account for 99,628 of U.S. hospitalizations of individuals 65 years and older, according to a study conducted by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control. Nearly 50% of those individuals were 80 years old and older. The study was conducted over the period 2007 to 2009 using 5077 hospitalizations.  Nearly two thirds of hospitalizations were due to unintentional overdoses (65.7%.1 to 71.3) in older adults.

MedMinder’s latest generation of pillbox, the Jon unit, has a locking function to ensure the safety and comfort for the users and their loved ones. No longer should you or your parents worry about overdosing or mis-dosing.
