The management of complex medication is required for avoiding it before it seriously affects the health of the aged people. Due to physical and mental decline, they need to take a number of drugs. In such a scenario, forgetting to take prescribed medicine is one of the problems. In hospitals there are many patients and it is difficult to remind every patient to take medicine on time. The traditional ways require human efforts to remind them to take medicines on time. The digital era doesn’t follow that and we can use machines to do that. can introduce in a solution a movable automatic medicine reminder and indicator this system will remind medicine. It can set an alarm on their dosage timings The alarm can be set for multiple medicines and timings including date. The system can be moved from one place to another place by using a mobile to control the entire unit. It is a combination of physical and digital reminders that will be helpful for people of any age, but is especially helpful to old people who forget to take their medications.
