My father has parkinson's and he has to take a bunch of pills. His parkinson's is mild right now so he functions pretty good. but he struggles with organizing and dispensing pills. Hours and hours he spends... due to the fact that the pill amount and frequency changes so much per week. Is there a pill dispenser that you can just program and it spits you out pills at the certain time or something? any help would be appreciated.

Not that I know of. However, they do make pill organizers that have to be manually arranged. Someone could come over once per week and put all his pills in the right compartments. Then he just has to take the right compartment at the right time.
