Medication talking alarm clock & medication reminder
on March 5, 2012
The Only reason I did not rate this product 5 stars is because of the prerecorded message that is included. The message says "Alarm Acknowledged" but it should say something like "It is time for your medication. Another problem is that my wife takes medication 4 times a day, twice in the morning and twice in in the afternoon. and there is no provision for altering the recording to reflect this. The first time it alarms in the morning and you acknowledge it it says "Alarm acknowledged the next alarm will be the afternoon alarm at (user supplied time set) AM. whoever programed the messages assumes that everyone takes one medication in the morning, one at noon, one at dinner and one at bedtime. I emaied the manufacturer about this but have not heard from them. My wife's dementia makes the messages a little confusing for her and it would be a simple matter for the manufacturer to correct this. Also it would be nice if it would allow for more than 4 medication times per day.
The clock performs exactly as advertised and the feature that tells the time upon pressing a colored button on the clock is very helpful especially for someone with limited eyesight.
