Best email and task management to communicate and track medication schedule of elderly mother.

I would like to use gmail and google tasks to communicate and track medication schedules with my elderly mother when I'm away. Are these the best two options available? It appears that google task does not include an alarm. Am I correct? Also, is there a way of making gmail more user friendly for my mother? Any other suggestions regarding the effective use of the computer to help keep in contact and tract my mother's medication use would be appreciated.
