Pillbox with alarm - recommendation?

Hi,

I'm hoping someone knows a product which can help here. I'm looking for a non-fiddly pillbox with a couple of alarm settings per day.

My father, who is partially sighted with poor memory, no concept of time, poor coordination (it's not early stage dementia, but you could describe the cognitive issues as 'like' that) struggles to take his pills. If not reminded, he manages less than one day in two on a standard pillbox.

I tried the following:
www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00JQ18RHW?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00
but it was too small and fiddly considering the partial sightedness and slight clumsiness - I'm looking for something a 4 year-old could use!

He's a very prickly character (putting it mildly) and probably wouldn't accept phonecalls to remind him. Has anyone come across a product which can help?

Thanks - any thoughts appreciated.

How often would you be able to refill it?

www.tabtime.com/medelert.htmlThis one has 28 compartments, and releases the tablets while sounding an alarm, so not fiddly to use
