The Day Monitor Alzheimer’s Wall Clock

Specially adapted Alzheimer’s day clocks can give dementia patients the ability to maintain control over an often-frustrating area of their lives for as long as possible. Whether or not a patient has lost the ability to "tell time" in the traditional manner, one of these special clocks can simplify life, especially as patients become less able to differentiate day from night or separate one day from another.

Specially adapted senior care clocks help Alzheimer's patients maintain peace of mind and minimize confusion by telling them when it's morning, afternoon, evening or night or even what day it is. Since recognition of daytime and nighttime cues and the ability to keep track of the days of the week decrease with the progression of Alzheimer's, these helpful adaptations can help dementia patients keep their bearings when time-related confusion arises.

This dementia day clock features a standard clock face combined with easy-to-read displays indicating the day, date and month, and other graphics that help patients match the time of day with the hour, giving dementia sufferers everything they need to keep better track of doctor's appointments and regular weekly activities.

Clocks like these help Alzheimer's patients maintain their self-esteem and independence by not having to ask others the time of day.

Clear, handsome and very reassuring December 3, 2013
Reviewer: LG from Boston, MA United States  
Hesitated over the price, but ordered it for an elderly auntie with vascular memory issues, recently moved to a bleakish nursing home. Two days in, wish I'd got it sooner! It arrived swiftly, no setup other than plug-in. It's smooth, solid and attractive, not too big to fit on a bedside table, stands well, easy to read. She puzzled over it at first, read it aloud, and a huge smile broke over her face as she "got it". It's clear, but not too bright for sleeping, a gentle glow. She can read it from 10' away, on entering the room in her wheelchair, for example. Her roommate (ambulatory & mildly forgetful) is thrilled- it frees them both from having to repeatedly ask the questions that uselessly consume so much mental bandwidth-ie, What day is it?, What time is it?, Is that 8 in the morning or at night? They find it more reassuring than I'd expected. Idk why ltc facilities don't have these on every counter! The accompanying brochure looks straightforward. Very satisfied, and want one too.
