To better manage her mother’s complex medication schedule, she taped the pills to a strip of cardboard and labeled them.

“It’s mind-boggling when you start having to manage medication,” she (Kathi Sitek - Inventor and President of Pill Pouch) says.

Very powerful!  What do you think?  Isn't this true for everyone in society? 

"Tools and technologies must be selected or rejected according to how they enhance or degrade the pursuit of the most positive elderhood possible.  Technologies (be they simple or complex) that foster a sense of belonging meaning or purpose can find a place in such an environment." ~William Thomas MD

Pill Pouch: The story of a mother and daughter's love
Introduction
Like all deep friendships love and care come easy.  But what makes a friendship deep are the obstacles that we overcome together.  

Kathi and Stella's biggest obstacle as daughter and mother and friends was obtaining control of Stella's medication.  Kathi wanted nothing more than to enjoy her time with her mother and friend.  And for Stella to be healthy and happy.  Stella's medication challenged this very foundation.  So Kathi, and all her resourcefulness, came up with a way to help Stella get control of her medication so they could focus on their companionship rather than on the medication.  See image of version 2 of the original Pill Pouch.
