Remembering to take pills

I have always set my dad's pills up each week in a big pill box, and used a big a calendar that notes the times of day he needs to take them. He is getting more forgetful to use the calendar, so I am considering calling him every day, and having my siblings help with the phone calls, to remind him throughout the day.

Dentures - If pills are taken twice a day - could help

If your mom wears dentures, she could place her pills near her dentures to help remind her to take her pills in the morning and in the evening.
