We were always forgetting appointments, so we got a dry erase board and put it up right where we all could see it. We haven't missed an appointment since. It's also good for quick notes to each other.
While I have a big calendar book and a smaller one in my purse, I need a more constant reminder of my medical appointments. What I do now is write them with day, date, time, doctor's name and phone number on a sheet of paper and tape it to side of computer near the front edge. I rewrite the list as necessary. They could also be written on a dry erase board attached to front or side of refrigerator.

Put a dry erase board on the refrigerator door for important dates so you will see it every time you open the refrigerator. This works well for the two of us, however, if you have many more family members, perhaps a dry erase calendar will work for you. I still list all appointments on my calendar in my office where I pay bills, etc. This is kind of like a safety net!
Use a small dry erase board on the 'fridge. You can't help but see it since you are in the 'fridge all the time!

My memory and I have trouble keeping up with each other, especially regarding appointments, and other important dates.
My Solution: Since I have a yahoo email which I check everyday, I use the calendar feature to remind me of appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, library due dates, etc. I set it to send me a reminder twice: 1 hr before and either 1 day or 1 week before the event. I also enter it in my cell phone calendar and it also beeps me a reminder. I have yet to miss an important event since I started doing this one year ago.
