The only challenges we had with it at first was making sure that Mom pushed the 'door' open far enough to reset the spring mechanism that turns off the alarm and sets it for the next turn of the pill tray. It's not difficult to push the door open and takes no strength to do so, you just have to push it up far enough. Once Mom got that down though, she loved it and even told us that she is very happy with her 'pill thingy' :) It's not so loud that the neighbors hear it, but it is loud enough to get her attention no matter where she is in the house. If you or your parents are forgetting when to take their meds, this will certainly aid in that!!
The MedReady Basic Pill Dispenser with Alarm P1600 seemed to be just what we were looking for. We set it up next to her chair. We had to tape instructions on it for her, so she could read them when the alarm goes off. We still occasionally call her and have her check to see if any pills are in the slot. If it's empty, I know she's taken her meds.
That's the biggest thing with this dispenser...if you're getting it for someone with little or no memory, they may not remember what to do when the alarm goes off... or if they took their pills when it went off. She still occasionally misses a dose but nowhere near as many as she did with other forms of dispensing. Now my only recommendation would be for them to create an alarm that they can carry on their person, so if they aren't near the dispenser, they will still hear the alarm and know they have to go get their medication. Or how about one we can set a recording to give them instructions? Obviously, it still needs to be refilled by someone else. Overall, we love it. It has helped them to continue living on their own.
