Do you take medications daily? Do you have trouble remembering to take them? I know my husband and I certainly do, especially the ones that you are supposed to take morning and night. I actually have my routine at night and never forget those meds (I keep those in my bathroom and take them right after brushing my teeth). The mornings are a different story, as my morning meds are in the kitchen, and when I come downstairs first thing after waking up, my four kitties start “herding” me towards the cabinet where there food is. One of them will reach up to me to be pet, and it goes downhill from there. I sit to enjoy my first sip of coffee, and ask myself, “UH OH – did I take my meds?”. Of course since I am still bleary eyed and sleepy, I honestly can’t remember.
What if I told you there is an app to help you remember to take your meds?
Care4Today™ Mobile Health Manager is a free mobile app (and website) with new features that will help you, by supporting and motivating you to stay on schedule with your medications. It is easy to get the app – it can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. You can also register on the website.
I have been playing around with this app, and I have to say that I love it! I got my first pill reminder this morning, and tonight I will get another. Love this!
To celebrate this very cool (and helpful) app, there is a fun Twitter party taking place on Thursday (January 16th), and I hope you will join me!
WHAT: It’s the New Year, and common resolutions focus on self-improvement, such as eating healthier, exercising more and losing weight. However, only 8% of people achieve those New Year’s resolutions. Luckily, there’s a tool that can help you with one health-related goal for 2014: remembering to take medications as prescribed.
WHEN: Thursday, January 16, at 1p ET / 12p CT / 10a PT
WHERE: We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #Care4Today hashtag to track the conversation. You can see the details and RSVP via this Twtvite: http://twtvite.com/Care4TodayNewYear
PRIZES: Five prizes will be randomly awarded throughout the party, from all eligible correct responses to trivia questions. Each prize includes a $50 VISA gift card and a Vera Bradley pill case. (No purchase necessary. Entrants must be legal residents of the 50 United States + D.C. 18 years of age or older. Void where prohibited. For official rules, click here.)
