Listen to your family, believe me, Parkinson's medication MUST be taken ON TIME to be effective!! Often, I think that that is the key to staying"on"!! For some reason, we start "turning off" by losing dopamine, and the timing of your replenishment is key to maintaining a steady flow of"normal" for us!
I Purchased my mother a Medcenter talking alarm clock bundle from amazon which includes a pillbox for seven days with compartments for morning, noon, evening and night medications with a talking alarm that you can set to beep or speak that it is time for her medication. Since she only takes meds three times a day, I programmed it for 9a.m., 3p.m. and 9p.m.. It is very loud and sounds until she shuts it off. This has been a wonderful help for her, as before she was forgetting if and when she took her medications. I also set up a notebook where she writes down the medications and the time she took them, as she would frequently forget and it allows her to keep track of her BP as this had been an ongoing problem which I think we now have undercontrol.
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member I bought it online from amazon here is the link:

I have been using my phone alarm. It works as long as my phone does not run out of power. I need an alarm to remind me to charge my phone lol.
