There are many people around us who are the victims of chronic disease. Most of them suffering from dementia. Some people overlook to take care of health. Because of the lack of an expert system, people are forced to submit in frequent health related problems. By analyzing the data, an internet of things (IoT) based reminder system has been developed. It is designed to assist the patient who forgets to take medicine. The proposed system consists of an IoT enabled device and an android application. It mainly focuses on dementia patient. But it is beneficial for all. Patients will no longer have to worry about daily medication. The application will send a notification when it’s time to take medicine. The mobile application is used for keeping the record in medicine details and reminding the schedule of medicine. We have used the IoT enabled Arduino device for monitoring the whole system. The device can sense whether a patient has taken medicine or not with the help of the infrared (IR) sensor. We have tried to develop a system which will help patients to manage their health care properly.
