Most of the old age people have multiple medicines to take to overcome their illnesses. Many deaths occurs due to wrong medication on wrong timing, or not taking medicine at all. Thus, in this paper a solution is proposed to overcome this problem. We are designing an intelligent pill box that can remind the elders to take medicine on time and can inform the families remotely weather the elders took the medicine or not. The pill box is equipped with a mobile application which gives privilege to the caretaker of elders to check and program the pillbox. If the elders don't take medicine, the caretakers will be informed on their mobile application to remind the elders manually.
