Does this exist (medication alarm)?

I am looking for an alarm that I can set to say, every 3 hours, but that I can start at a different time each day, if that makes sense? The phone alarm as dexterity is a problem for the patient. So get up @8am, hit the alarm and it goes off every 3hrs, same if you wake@10 etc. Have you seen anytime similar? TIA

You could look at a cooking timer, although I think mine has less than 2 hours but basically when you turn the alarm off it is ready to go the same time again by pressing one button.

You can also get alarm watches for medication.

You could also st a countdown timer on a computer/tablet

Thank you both. The cooker/tablet not suitable as she doesn't have either but thank you. Will look at Eric and for med watch.

Unfortunately seems like the alarm clocks/watches have to be set to same time each day rather than a stopwatch type thing. She wouldn't be able to set each day..

The one I linked to said it did have an interval setting, eg every 1 or 2 hours, as well as the individual time settings.
