This usually means that medication may be involved to help with cognitive and/or physical impediments. When medication is involved, it can sometimes be difficult to track whether the necessary daily dosage has been taken. Even young adults with full cognitive abilities forget whether they have taken their supplements each day. The point is everyone, especially the elderly, when taking daily medication in pill form, can use a method of keeping track whether they have taken the correct dosage on the right day. That is why using a simple pill blister card can make taking oral medication a whole lot easier.
