Since you relate your Dad is on medication for "memory loss", one has to consider if the reason for not taking the medications now may be related to some kind of progressing dementia. Dementia could cause one to become confused about many things that once was routine.
It would be best to consult with your Dad's physician as to this new development, how long it has been going on, all medications prescribed, any other new medical issues or symptoms, and the possible cause. It needs to be determined if he does have a diagnosis of some kind of dementia that is not reversible. If so, it may mean a new way to ensure your Dad's medications are given and dispensed is now necessary for him.
