Hello, I’m new to the forum, but I would like to ask your advice and see if I could get some answers on a couple questions.
I have a son (7 years old), who was diagnosed with asthma a year ago. The problem is that he keeps forgetting to take his medicine (inhalers) – which really worries me! Both the doctor and my husband and I have talked to him about it several times, but it doesn’t seem to stick with him for a long time.
I believe that if I could somehow turn the process of taking the medicine into something fun, it would be easier for him to remember it. Therefore, can anyone recommend any kind of electronic device or different/alternative inhalers that could turn taking the medicine into an interactive process?
I have seen the recent discussions on this forum regarding loosing inhalers and being unaware of the importance of taking the medicine, but do any of you have any other ideas or advice?
I was thinking of something like inhalers with built-in games or electronic inhalers that demanded some kind of interaction with the user?
Thank you so much
