Medication support in Real Time to give peace of mind. YOURmeds is the first medication solution that empowers people by helping to improve their medication adherence. Difficulty with medication is usually the first sign of the onset of dementia, and it is critically important that people are supported as fully as possible with their medication regime. People living with dementia often have other conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure etc, so they need to take their medication regularly. This is a major worry, not only for them, but also their family members, who are very often their (informal) carers.
Our philosophy is that technology should be simple to use, provide peace of mind for loved ones, and provide a better outcome for people. Our products have been designed with input from clinicians, carers, users and charities. We believe Pharmacies should dispense the medication, and we have created simple packaging that allows them to do so in a timely manner. People are supported at all times by a network that they choose, so that they are reminded (and monitored) in real time. This gives the carers and families the peace of mind, that even when they are not there, their loved one has adhered to the medication regime. By doing this, we reduce accidents, hospital and GP visits, and enable people to live more fulfilling lives.
