What is a Day Clock?

Does Grandma Need a Dementia Day Clock?

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, among the early signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia is trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships and lose track of dates, seasons and the passage of time. As a dementia caregiver, you want to provide as much support as possible for your loved one to maintain independence and reduce anxiety. The dementia day clock can be one of these tools.

A dementia clock or sometimes referred to as an Alzheimers clock or day clock, is a proven specialized clock that is designed to help people with dementia or other cognitive impairments understand what time of day it is. The clocks have large, easy-to-read numbers and clear markings for morning, afternoon, evening, and night. They may also have features such as repeating alarms and visual indicators to help remind the user of important events or tasks.

Benefits include:

• Improved sense of time and date
