While Joyce is in her own home my sister takes care of getting her medications set up in her daily and weekly pill minders. Unfortunately Joyce has to take quite a lot of medication. She has COPD, had back surgery a couple of years ago but still has some residual pain, and has other issues that require some monitoring. When she travels it's a bit harder to make sure her meds are accurate. She now has a machine that is like a scanner that can read the prescription bottle and tell her what's in it, what it's for and how to take it - isn't that amazing? She's been carrying them all in a big bag that I made her several years ago divided into two ziplock bags...one for night and one for day. That's a bit cumbersome for her so this week I made her some new ones. The bright yellow one is for the daytime....yellow like the sunshine. The navy blue one with big white stars is her night one...the stars come out at night.
What's up with that you say? She can't see the colors? You're right, but she can feel the buttons I put right at the bottom of each strap. I used round yellow buttons for the sun, and white star buttons for the nighttime stars. The bags will feel the same to her until she feels each one for the buttons and then she'll know which one she has!
I think she's going to love these - I can't wait to give them to her next week when I go to visit.
