Many people compromise their health because they don't take all their medications as instructed. The Personal Caregiver app helps you, as the family caregiver, set up reminders for your senior loved one including when it's time to take a medication, which one to take, and how many. It also lets the senior or a caregiver keep a detailed history to track what was already taken and when. Note that some users have reported limitations with the time-editing functionality on this app, so start with the free version and if it doesn't work for you, try the similar RxmindMe app. Visit for more information.
