I am caregiver to my disabled wife. I am having a problem remembering
to give her the meds at night.
Is there an alarm, perhaps in the computer, that can be set to go off
every night? Manually setting an alarm to remind me just adds another

I'm pretty computer illiterate so if there is such an alarm there, be
specific as to where.
I have a $20 digital alarm clock from Radio Shack that has a "reset"
button, not a switch, to silence the alarm. It stays set for the next
day. There is a separate "snooze" button, and on-off switch.
It is Cat# 63-117, may have been replaced by cat# 63-453
Are you using a daily holder for the meds? That makes it simpler to
keep track of which dose has/has not been adminstered...simply look to see.

I have a somewhat irregular schedule (alarm at 4:30AM M, 7:00AM TWTF, none SS)
and found that the alarm on my cell phone works great for this. I also added
an alarm for 4:00PM Fiday to make sure I send in my time card, which I fill
out immediately wherever I am, using the cell phone - no missed paychecks ;-).
Simple Reminder works on any windows (XP and above) computer. Can set up
reminders for all sorts of things and attach a different sound to each
reminder. Software is freeware.
