I try to prep two weeks worth of meds at a time (using pill boxes) for each of my parents. I've had two mini breakdowns in 6 mos as I, myself, am bipolar (I'm medicated but it's not always enough given my having to care for my parents).
There is a monthly fee, however it connects with my phone. There is an alert on the machine for when to take the medications. It has taken all the stress out of taking medication.
What is HERO? Never heard of it, but I'll Google it:) Thx:)
We use the automatic pill dispenser HERO. It has been a game changer.
I do for both of my parents as well. I bought an automatic pill dispenser and it's been so much better. I can fill it with both am and pm pills and it holds 2 weeks worth so I only have to fill it 2x a month. I can then also track what they are taking and when they miss doses
My husband is on several medications and I have Pill Pack from Amazon package his medicines into packet for AM and PM. You will have to check with Medicare to see if you can get the meds your parents are taking done this way. Good luck as that is such a strenuous job keeping each one of their meds in proper order.
