Who is the DayClock for?
The Dementia Day Clock is aimed at helping people living with dementia by simply and clearly displaying the time of day as morning, afternoon, evening or night. People living with dementia can lose the ability to recognise what the time is and even whether it is day or night. This can cause many challenges for them and for their primary carers. The Day Clock can significantly help people with dementia maintain their daily routine and reduce anxiety about the time of day and them missing key events.
The Day Clocks’ clear and simple display of “Now it’s Monday Morning” was developed by the Bath Institute of Medical Engineers who worked with Occupational Therapists and Carers to develop the concept. The aim of the Day Clock is to help people with dementia to be able to link the time of day to their daily routine.
The Day Clock has a number of features which are specific to people with dementia including tamper proof button sequencing to ensure that random pressing of the buttons does not reset the clock. The Dementia Clock will revert back to the correct date and time when switched off and then on, as well as retaining the correct time if it is unplugged. The Day Clock is clearly visible at night without being bright and it comes with corner night lighting which make the display more prominent at night and which can be turned off if not required.
The Dementia Day Clock can also be used as a digital photo frame by simply inserting a pre-loaded SD card into the frame and the frame will immediately revert to being a day clock when the SD card is removed.
The Day Clock requires no maintenance apart from resetting the internal clock when the clocks change for summer and winter times. This is very simple to do and the manual and website (www.day-clock.com) both give step by step instructions.
Every Day Clock has a 12 month warranty and full support is available through our website and our customer service helplines and live email response/web chat.
The response to the Day Clock has been extraordinary and demand initially outstripped supply many times over. We are always interested to hear from our customers and we welcome all feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
