Keeping up with Daily Medicines

My mother is ninety-one and I’m her primary caregiver. I use a weekly medicine day planner to keep up with her meds. I’m sure there are two-week planners, perhaps even a monthly planner, however, they’re not in the stores around here. But….the local Rite-Aid did have a planner with slots for taking medicines four times a day.

My mother takes medicine both morning and night. I decided to turn the four-times-a-day planner into a two-week planner. I marked through the “Noon” and replaced with an “N” for night and the “Afternoon” and replaced with an “M” for morning. Now I can organize her medicine two weeks at a time. That alerts me when she is getting low on a certain med.

Not rocket science, but helpful for me!
