  1. My best friend's husband has Parkinson's and Lewy Body Dementia, along with a few other health conditions... I've known this couple for 15 years and have walked this walk with them watching as the progression of PD has truly begun... He's still very physically active, but the dementia is what's beginning to really cause concern... As you all know, the pill regiment is very strict and usually based on the patient themselves... Here's my concern: Because he doesn't take his first round of meds until he wakes up (what ever time that might be), it makes using a regular pill reminder very difficult because it could be anywhere from 1 to 3 hours off... (I.E. he gets up at 9 a.m. versus 7 a.m.) I'm been trying to find something that will work with him and his day to day schedule but can't seem to find what they need... He does have a smartphone, but always forgets to carry it and hasn't actually carried it in months; so it will have to be a physical device of some form... Is there something you all can recommend for this? Most of the devices I see online are designed for either a smartphone or someone not dealing with dementia, but maybe I'm looking in the wrong place? Thank you in advance for your help!
