There are many medication systems available. You could try www.alzstore.com. It's a very good resouce that is closely related to Alzheimer's support. If a person needs to administer the meds, then you may have to hire an in-home health agency. However, since your mother is getting disability, this will be easier than for most people. She should get help from Medicare and/or Medicaid. Talk with the people administering her program.

Alert systems are abundant. If you don't have a preference, call around to in-home agencies in your area and see if they have suggestions. Watch for one where you don't sign a contract. You don't want to be stuck paying a year on the service when if your mom goes to a nursing home.

The prices probably won't be all that different, but the contracts may be.

Good luck. Yes, it's of 2much2soon!
