In brief: See below

Does your mom get confused & sometimes take wrong med or forget doses? You can help by setting up a daily or weekly med box (they're available in pharmacies or supermarket drug section).
Set up a schedule for when the meds are to be taken, or you can administer the meds yourself. Home health nurse can do something similar. There are even fancy pill boxes that beep when it's time to take a med.
