Visual cues may help Care recipient (cr) remember what medications are taken when

Try: #assign colors for each time medications need to be taken for example green for morning yellow for noon and blue for evening #put colored dots on the medicine bottles corresponding to the time of day each medication is to be taken #after the medicine is taken turn the bottle over if the medicine is to be taken again that day put a corresponding colored dot on the bottom of the prescription bottle #if vision is slightly poor use a white adhesive sticker on the top and bottom of the pill bottles to draw dots on the white background will show the colors in higher contrast #use the notebook to keep track of medication times and place a check mark by the times medication has been taken this may also help a cr stay mindful of what has been taken when

Materials: Medicine bottles colored markers white adhesive stickers if needed notebook
