Prodding and Prompting: Medication Reminders

Prodding and Prompting: Medication Reminders

I am sure I’ve written about medication reminders before, or have I? Only kidding! I pretty sure I haven’t written about medication reminders specifically. Have I?

You are not the boss of me!

Honey, have you seen my keys?

By Jean Des Roches, AT Program Director


Honey, have you seen my keys?

I don’t have to tell you I was shocked when I eventually found them in a pocket, in my purse. But, I KNEW I had left them on the table! Hadn’t I? How did that happen? It is at times like these we all start to fear that the everyday memory issues we all have might really be the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
