An easier way to support loved ones with their medications.
YOURmeds gives you peace of mind knowing that the people you support are taking the right medicines at the right time allowing them to remain independent in their own homes for longer.
We all need a helping hand from time to time
Independence and Support rolled into one.
The medicine packs come filled directly from the pharmacy reducing the risk of errors that can be made when people sort out their own medicines into plastic pill boxes.
When it’s time to take the meds a number appears on the tag and pack will beep 6 times. After 10 minutes the pack can notify a supporter like yourself through the YOURmeds supporter app that the medicines haven’t been accessed and you can make a quick phone call to remind them to take their medicines.
Up to 5 people can be nominated as supporters allowing other family members who may not be close by to offer support, a new supporter is informed every 10 minutes.
Complete a short online assessment and find out if YOURmeds is suitable for you or your loved ones.

Oh, it's brilliant, I just don't forget now, well I do but the pack beeps so I can't forget. Makes such a difference, just simpler and easier for me to do.
Prescribed Medicine adherance
Early warning indicator system.
Providing medicines in the YOURmeds system can also be used as a cognitive assessment tool. West Lothian Council use YOURmeds for this purpose as they recognise the daily task of taking your medicines on time is a good indicator on how someone is doing cognitively. The NHS guidelines recognises “YOURmeds as the first digital medication dosage system that allows for real-time monitoring of medication adherence”2
The NHS also says that if people take their medicines on time 80% of the time they have a better chance of managing a long term condition, this is due to something called “Drug Therapeutic Ranges” Pharmaceutical companies spend millions of pounds bringing medicines to the market through clinical trials and testing, a fundamental part of this is achieved because people in the trials take their medicines on time proving the efficacy of the medicine against the long term condition.

Prevention is better than the cure.
