Medications are a big part of most any treatment plan. When interviewed, most people think they do not need any help with remembering to take medications. In studies, however, it turns out that about half of those taking medications fail to take them as prescribed and frequently forget doses altogether. In the senior population, non-adherence is even higher ranging from 50-75%.
