I’m Getting Old. Good thing there’s #Care4Today!

Posted Jan 15 2014 6:33am

This post is sponsored as part of a campaign with Care4Today™ Mobile Health Manager and The Motherhood.



If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know that Emily likes to make fun of me for being older than she is. And the fact remains – I can NEVER change that! And as the years go by, it’s not as cute of a joke as it used to be. Because dangit in the past few years I’ve acquired two heating pads, lots of tubes of Icy Hot (and patches, ooh love the patches!), a chiropractor , a massage therapist, and a pill splitter. Sigh. My body is just not what it used to be. I mean, I’m still smokin’ hot and all, but I’ve got more than my share of aches and pains these days. And with that comes the occasional prescription as well as some natural supplements I take every day to stay healthy.

But due to a serious case of Momnesia , I often forget to take things or refill them on time. Whoopsie! Like I’ve said before, I’m my own worst enemy .

My forgetfulness (if I get out of my routine, I am hopeless!) when it comes to taking my supplements and medications has messed me up a few times, so I’m glad to have found a great app to help me manage not only my daily meds, but also anything my kids are taking when they have the occasional Rx. You know I love apps, and since I always have my phone on me, the reminders are convenient and I always get the message. This fab app is called the Care4Today™ Mobile Health Manager, and I love it! It’s available on iTunes, Google Play, and on the web – for FREE!


Not only does Care4Today™ remind you of medications you need to take, it also lets you create a record to share with family members or health professionals so they can see how you’re doing, and as I mentioned, you can set reminders for your family members’ medications too.

To learn more about this app and get lots of great health tips for the new year, I hope you’ll join me, the Motherhood, and some other great bloggers for a #Care4Today twitter party on Thursday – that’s tomorrow! – at 1 pm EST.

Luckily, there’s a tool that can help you with one health-related goal for 2014: remembering to take medications as prescribed.Care4Today™ Mobile Health Manager is a free mobile app and website with new features designed to support and motivate people to stay on schedule with their medications.
