Hi all,  things are looking good.......a lovely lady visited me today to discuss the PIVOTELL.
I mentioned this before and have seen and held the item!

It`s great and I agreed to having one and that in itself has brought good things for me and stressed hubby. My meds will now be taken care of by my pharmacist. So I wont have to remember to order meds on line and quite often run out of some, wont have to send hubby to fetch them, which we also forget to do, dispense them into my dosette box, forget to take them and sometimes take the day at night an vice versa, discard all the empty packets (occasionally throwing tablets out in error).

The PIVOTELL has an alarm, which   opens only the tablets you have to take. So yeh, great stuff!
Shortly after she`d gone, I got a call from my Social Worker who made 2 appointments with us;

1. To come with an NHS body, next Friday,  re funding for more care for me,as we are struggling to cope
2. To come next Thursday, to a do a carer`s assessment for my over worked hubby.

Feeling much better than of late.

    Great news @pollyanna1052! How much does it cost to buy the Pivotell?

    Hi April, looked at them on line and they are about £100. Mine is free as social services referred me for one, as I get muddled up with tablets.

    I,m glad you got something that helps Pollyanna ...sounds a great device . I have a dosette as well but i,m pretty poor at taking my day tablets and if not for my wife ordering them and filling up my dosette box each week , i would be lost . I once took my night tablets by mistake ( includes a sleeping pill ) within an hour i had to go back to bed ??.i will leave the new dosette for a few months as the council are putting in a wet room in a couple of weeks ...i don,t want to press them for anything else , they also put in a new slabbed path for me and my wife . ...and grab rails on the steps and doors .

    Hi, I`m so glad to read about the help you are getting. I haven't got the PIVOTELL yet, but will soon. I often take night tablets in the day and visa versa!
