This unique clock, with no abbreviations, has been designed to help senior citizens living with Dementia or early stage Alzheimer’s, who often lose the ability to distinguish between days of the week and cycles of the day. This disorientation can lead to agitation and confusion. This Dementia Clock clearly displays the DAY OF THE WEEK & cycle of the day, whereby each day is divided into 4 cycles – Morning, Afternoon, Evening & Night. The start time of the day cycles are easily customizable to the customers preferences. It has an internal clock whose time is adjustable via the menu setup buttons. Helps with time orientation for the period of the day, without the need to know the exact time. The Day Clock is a great aid & self help product for anyone experiencing Dementia, Alzheimers or memory loss. It makes a great gift for our aging population and assists in managing their care. Our tamper-resistant design features a simple and clear display showing the DAY of the WEEK and the Day Cycle as either MORNING, AFTERNOON, EVENING or NIGHT. The clock enables independence among seniors & helps in their schedule and time management. It can be used as either a desk clock or a wall mounted clock and is very beneficial for elderly population, stroke victims, people with Dementia or early stages of Alzheimer’s, who can often get confused and not know what day of the week it is. The clock runs using the AC adapter that is included. However, there is an internal battery that maintains the time when unplugged, so that when you plug it in either for the first time or after it is unplugged for any reason, it will display the correct day of the week and the current cycle of the day (i.e. morning, afternoon, evening or night).
