DEMENTIA DAY CLOCK

Any clock can tell you the time, but a Day Clock also tells you what day it is. The patented design divides the face of the clock into 7 equal pie shaped sections, one for each day of the week. The day hand moves continuously making a complete revolution every 168 hours or once a week. The lines dividing the days indicates midnight. The arrow above each day indicates noon. Halfway between the arrow and each line indicates 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.. The day hand moves 2.14 degrees every hour. Each pie shaped section is 51.43 degrees.


Life with Alzheimer’s is not abundant with "success" stories, in fact, corrections abound and uncertainty flourishes. To know something even as simple as what day it is or to know where to independently find out this information is valuable, important and empowering. It can also serve as a daily routine, a landmark and a subtle cue, assuring the resident that if he or she passes the Day of the Week Clock en route to the dining room, they are headed in the right direction.

Day Clock helps you keep track of the days of the week, with a special notch to determine when it’s noon. The Dementia Day Clock is available in Oak or Mahogany. It is powered by a single AA battery.

Not the traditional clock, this one has no numbers. The face of the clock is divided into seven segments, each representing a day of the week. The single “day hand” goes around slowly to point to Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. – one full rotation equals one week.

Use it as a gentle reminder for those who have difficulty keeping track of the day of the week, as a guiding feature in a facility, and as an interesting and intriguing decoration in the living room, at the nurse’s station, or in a daycare setting. Quite the practical and unique time piece, with extra benefits for those with a little “day of the week” forgetfulness.

Excellent product. Although we originally hung the clock on the wall, my 87-year old mother carries the clock in her tote bag, and takes it to bed with her at night.  If she's happy, then I'm happy!

My Mom loved this clock.  She hung it up right away.  Now she said she will always know what day it is. :)
