My Flying Saucer! – new medication dispenser

A 7-day supply arrives safely packed, and the service is free in New South Wales

I am very pleased with my new gadget. Battery operated, it’s to help get my medication at the right time. Also the right amount.

The cardboard Pack that I will get was getting ready-made from the chemist was not working with my vision. After I had fought my way in there was usually one tablet on the floor somewhere. Never to be seen again.

This automatically moves around, buzzes, flashes, and opens at the right time and there’s the right tablets.

All I have to do is to tip them into hand or a cup. It will then stop beeping.

It is really handy.

Better still my chemist has a spare insert which she fills up for next week, and it is delivered to my home. Every Wednesday the Chemist Assistant unlocks the box and takes out the empty one and sets up the new one, so it is all very safe.

Another move in the right direction. This getting old is a pain in the bum. fortunately an actual pain in the b** is not a problem!

    1. Yes Michael. Mobility shops have them. I got mine from Local Mobility in Cardiff NSW. They are expensive but available through your Care Plan or possibly subsidised by your medical fund. It has made a big difference.
