Buyer's Guide

pill organizer with some medicines

Whether you're old or young, remembering to take your daily pills can be difficult, and the more pills you're required to take, the harder it seems to get.

If you or someone you love is the type of person who has to take multiple pills at multiple times throughout the day, you might have noticed how problematic that can be. Many people associate pill organizers with the elderly. Truthfully, though, pill organizers are incredibly useful for anyone who takes more than one or two pills a day, no matter his or her age.

Selecting the right pill organizer for your or your loved one's needs can be a little more challenging because there are so many options from which to choose. How do you know which type is the right one? Do you need a daily organizer, a weekly organizer or a monthly organizer? Is one brand better than another? Let's find out.

Are pill organizers good for traveling?

If you're traveling and take a moderate amount of medication, a pill organizer is practically a necessity. The type of pill organizer that'll be best for you while traveling is mostly dependent upon how long you'll be gone. If you're going on an overnight trip, a daily organizer is fine. If you'll be gone several days or a week, a weekly pill organizer might be the better option. If you're going to be on an extended vacation or business trip, you might even want to get a monthly organizer.

Organizers are convenient ways for you to keep all of your medication in one place.

Plus, having an organizer eliminates the need for you to cart around all your different pill bottles. If you're concerned about taking medication with you on a plane without it being in a prescription bottle, simply request a note from your doctor listing all your current prescriptions and their dosages. Although according to TSA guidelines, this isn't necessary, if it cuts down on your anxiety about traveling with medication, just go ahead and do it anyway.

Is there a specific pill organizer that's best for use with elderly patients?

simple daily pill organization system

If you're looking to buy a pill organizer for an elderly person in your life, there's no one specific organizer that works best. There are, however, a few factors you might want to take into account before making your final decision.

Size of the Organizer/How Many Pills It Holds

This is a big consideration when it comes to buying the right organizer for an elderly patient. It seems like the older people get, the more pills they have to take. For generally healthy elderly patients, this can mean taking five or six different pills and/or vitamins a couple times a day.

For elderly patients who aren't in such good health, this can mean taking upwards of 20 to 25 pills a day. Patients suffering from terminal illnesses may take even more.

A tiny organizer that holds two or three pills isn't going to do the trick with these types of patients. If you're purchasing a pill organizer for an elderly loved one, talk with him or her first. Find out how many pills s/he takes and how often each day s/he takes them. This'll help ensure you get the right organizer for the job.

Ease of Opening

As people grow older, their hands don't always work as well as they should. Whether it's due to an issue of decreased strength/muscle mass or just a decrease in manual dexterity, elderly patients can have a hard time opening certain types of containers.

Make sure whatever type of organizer you buy for your elderly loved one is easily opened by someone older. If mental dexterity is a concern, you'll also want to make sure the organizer isn't too complicated (logically) to open.

How Easy It Is to Understand

This is another thing related to mental dexterity. How easy is the organizer to use? Does it have a lot of crazy pictures on the front representing the different times of day? If so, will your elderly relative understand what those pictures mean?

If not, you may want to buy one that's more straightforward and has words like "Breakfast," "Lunchtime," "Supper" and "Bedtime" written on it instead.

Letters Are Large Enough to See

If you do buy a pill organizer that has words, letters or times written on it, make sure the text is written in a font size that's large enough for elderly eyes to see and read. After your loved one gets used to using the pill organizer, this might not be as much of an issue because s/he'll be using it more out of routine instead of actually reading it. However, when s/he first gets it and starts using it, s/he may have to check the label fairly regularly to make sure s/he's taking the right pills at the right time.

Ease of Transporting

Your elderly loved ones get out and about just like you. Sometimes they enjoy going out to dinner. Sometimes they have to shop or go out for an appointment. Sometimes they just want to go visit you and the rest of their family and friends.

For this reason, they'll sometimes be carrying their pill organizers around with them. Make sure your elderly relative can easily carry his or her pill organizer in her purse, his jacket pocket or somewhere else. This means it needs to be large enough not to get lost but small enough to be transported comfortably. It also means it needs to fasten securely so that it doesn't pop open and spill the pills everywhere.

Easy to See Pills Have Been Taken

This is another hugely important consideration when buying an organizer for the elderly. One of the largest mishaps with elderly patients is that they skip a necessary dose of medicine or take an extra dose accidentally simply because they can't remember whether or not they've taken their pills.

That's why a pill organizer that breaks down the pills by time of day is so convenient for elderly patients. If your grandfather can't remember whether or not he's taken his blood pressure medication before bed, all he has to do is look at the "Friday Bedtime" slot in his pill organizer and see if there's a pill still in it.

If not, he took it. If it's still there, he needs to take it.

Which type of organizer is better: daily, weekly or monthly?

am pm daily pill organizing box

Whether you choose a daily, weekly or monthly pill organizer is entirely up to you, but there are definitely some advantages to each.

Daily Organizers

While there are no daily pill organizers on this list, you can buy such a thing. Usually they're simply called a "pill box." Some look much like a woman's compact, while others have two compartments - one for AM and one for PM. Daily organizers are mainly for people who have to take pills when they know they're going to be out of the house. These are great if you're just looking for a way to take your lunchtime pills to work with you instead of carrying the whole bottle. They're also good if you know you're going to be out of your house overnight and will need to take your pills the next morning.

Weekly Organizers

Weekly organizers are probably the most commonly purchased types of organizers. They're still small enough to be easily and conveniently carried in a purse, briefcase, laptop case or other small bag, but they hold enough pills to last you the whole week. The real draw to these types of organizers is that you only have to fill them up once a week. Instead of having to drag out your case of medicine and open all those pill bottles each and every day, you simply have to do it once on Sunday night or Monday morning, and you're set for the whole week. These are also great because they help you remember if you've taken your pills for the day or not.

Monthly Organizers

There are two main types of monthly pill organizers. The first type is one large container that has between 28 and 31 smaller containers inside it, one to represent each day of the month. The large part of the organizer is meant to stay in one, central location like your kitchen counter or the bathroom medicine cabinet, and you take one of the smaller organizers with you each day.

The advantage to this type of organizer is that you only have to fill it up once a month. Each month, you go pick up your prescriptions, fill up the organizer, and you're good to go for the entire month.

The disadvantage is that the whole thing is bulky, meaning you can only carry the single, daily pill organizers with you. At night, you put them back into the large container and get the small container for the next day.

It can be slightly irritating to have to change out every night. Plus, the small containers are much easier to lose or misplace than a large, weekly organizer.

The other type of monthly pill organizer is similar to number seven on the list.

It only works if you take six pills or less a day (unless you find a larger one made in a similar fashion). You dump an entire month's worth of pills into one slot of the container, an entire month's worth of another type of pill into the second slot and so on and so forth. This gives you your entire month's worth of prescriptions in one place. The advantage is that you have all your pills at your fingertips in one small, easily transportable case.

The main disadvantage is that this type of case will in no way help you remember if you've taken a pill or not. Because there's no strict pattern of organization, the only way you'd know if you took a pill is to dump out the entire slot, count all the pills and see if the number of pills corresponds to the day of the month (assuming you started on the first day of the month).

The other disadvantage to this type of monthly organizer is if you lose it, you lose every pill you take for the whole month, which can be extremely problematic. Still, if you're just looking for a convenient way to store all your pills in one spot and aren't prone to losing things, this is a good option.

Final Words
