You don't have to be old to be forgetful. Forgetfulness is a common occurrence among all ages for different reasons: preoccupation with family or job issues, lots of activities or even multiple hobbies. In any event, there are times when you just cannot forget the important stuff in your life such as taking medications. Even if it's just a daily multi-vitamin, how often do you forget to take that? I am the first one to admit guilt - maybe 3 days a week I remember to chug down that big pill?

What about your aging parents? More than likely they have a strict regime of medicines they must take, whether they like it or not. Very likely, they can remember every scheduled Mahjong and Bridge game, yet they completely omit the small detail of taking their meds! Maybe you can help them along with MedCoach Medication Reminder. Forgetfulness be gone with MedCoach! This helpful app can also connect to your pharmacy to refill your prescriptions (which can be quite a nuisance at times). Let's see all the important features that make this iPhone medication management reminder app so beneficial:

•Personal medication schedule
•Pill reminders and alerts when it's time to take your medications
•Log the pills you took
•Connect to your pharmacy to refill prescriptions
•Create a list of your medications for your doctor or health provider
•Look up pill and drug information
•Simple and easy to use
•Reliable alarm function
•Low battery usage
•Set multiple daily alarms
•Set multiple daily doses
•Automatic refill reminders
•Medicine details and information available
•Your data is backed up automatically

With MedCoach, you get started by adding your medications into the database. A helpful red flashing sign alerts you to do this, and there are helpful popup instructions all throughout the app. On your home page, you will see buttons for: Reminders, Refills, History, Doctors, Pharmacies and Settings. As you begin to add in your medications, you will see just how detailed MedCoach can be. The Medications page for each item includes the name, strength, form, image, amount, days and times to be taken, current quantity, last refill, RX number, days ahead to be reminded of refills, pharmacy and prescribing doctor.

I think any caregiver would appreciate this comprehensive information in the palm of their hand. Tap to add Doctors and Pharmacies to the database and you're all set to take very good care of yourself or a family member! The Reminders button will show a red flag until you tap it to clear for Just Taken or Took as Shown. How helpful is that! The same process applies for Refills where a red flag alerts you that "x" number of pills are remaining and a refill of your prescription is due.

BONUS POINTS: Simple to use with a clean interface and nice organizational structure. Check off reminders and alerts are a great benefit to those who may otherwise forget life-saving meds.

COOL CONCLUSION: MedCoach Medication Reminder is a simple solution to managing all aspects of your medication regime from doctor, to dosage and pharmacy in a useful circle of efficiency.
