Medication mismanagement can be incredibly disruptive to any household. Missed doses can lead to erratic behavior, illness and even hospitalization. The effects on the entire family may last long after the issue has been resolved. STAAR Alert’s medication management program is a long-term solution that will help ease everyone’s mind.
One of STAAR Alerts’s high quality systems is the Med Ready. This home medication dispenser is easy to use, reliable and effective. Using a traditional land line or cellular network, users can be reminded to take up to four doses per day. Reminders can be set 24/7 to manage even the most complex schedules. Monitored dispensers have been able to help people take medication on time up to 96 percent of the time!
The Med Ready’s custom tray design offers many features that make it one of the best choices available. Separate refillable dosage sections can fit up to 15 pills, depending on the shape and size. The compartment locks to ensure no one is able to tamper with or overdose from the medications inside. Its 24-hour back-up battery also ensures uninterrupted usage if the power goes out.
Most important, however, is the system’s monitoring capabilities. When a dose is scheduled, a loud 85-decibel alarm will alert the user to take their medication. If a dose is missed, STAAR Alert features free caregiver reporting. Family members, friends and medical professionals can access compliance information via phone or text message to track wellness. The system can also be monitored by the professionals at Life Safety Monitoring. When an alert is received of a missed dose, a trained responder will contact the user and follow-up with caregivers to ensure the highest compliance rates possible.
Plans start as low as $36 per month with no long-term contracts required. Installation of a new system is very simple, or a member of our service team can perform the set up in your area. Contact us today at 800-338-7114 to learn more about how medication management can benefit your loved ones!
