Why are clocks important to Alzheimer's patients? People
faced with Alzheimer's, memory loss and Dementia need structure,
routine and focus. They lose the ability to recognize what time it is
and whether its day or night. Placing large numbered clocks throughout
the house or even in their room will enable them to see the time
clearly. These clocks help reduce anxiety about the time of day and ease
the worry of missing an appointment, your favorite show, mealtime or
any other key event. Clocks that indicate daytime and nighttime easily
can help from becoming confused during times of the year when light
changes earlier or later than usual.
Tip: always remind him or her of the date, day, time, and place to maintain orientation...
View this great article written about our Alzheimer's Clocks in The Huffington Post by Sarah Archer. The clock is not only suitable for Assisted Living Facilities and Memory Care Centers but lobby and vestibule areas of offices, showrooms and schools. This clock should be behind every reception desk. IT SIGNIFIES TO THE PATIENT AND CUSTOMER THAT YOU ARE A DEMENTIA FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT.
"My 94 year old mother who is at beginning stages of dementia needed a way to help her with her medications as using a calendar was no longer sufficient. We found your clock online and placed it over the tv and it has been a huge help. So far it has helped greatly as she has not been confused or missed medications. We have also passed on your website to other people who have become caregivers for their elderly parent or parents. Very pleased with your product." Regards, Bob Wicks
