Hi everyone. I care for my Dad and I have been looking and trying to figure out some sort of day and night visual clock as dad gets up at 7pm thinking it is 7am (especially during daylight savings time) and has his shower and takes his morning meds etc at 7pm! I am aware of a digital photo frame which displays 'Monday morning' or 'Monday evening' etc but this would not work for my dad as firstly he needs glasses and would not think to put glasses on to read the clock through the night. Also he is starting to have difficult recognising words - I recently noticed he gets a bit scrambled up when he is writing down any grocery items. Has anyone else seen or used any other suitable products? Thanks.

My Mom has a huge digital display with day, date, and time and it's been working fairly well, but now she's getting a little more confused. I just googled clocks for Alzheimer's and this one came up -- it looks like something that might work well for those in an advanced confused stage....
 
 
Hope this helps.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately I have tried this and as it is all text it doesn't really work for someone who wears glasses (and doesn't put them on when they wake before they get in the shower). I am looking for something with a visual image or something. But thanks heaps.

This is what my Mom has:
 
 
But that being said...she called the other day to wish me a happy birthday. She said she knew the date was the 28th, but she didn't know what month it was and told me that she gets so confused. Regardless, it's always so sweet to hear her voice, and she tried so hard...and I'm amazed that she dialed the phone. :-)

we have two clocks at our site www.clocksforalzheimers.com

the round one is simple clock where the day and date are not a factor

the key thing to keep in mind is that they should look like clocks otherwise they may not be seen as a time piece
hope these help

I found exactly what my dad needs and it has been working very well. Thanks for all your replies. I purchases a cheap android tablet device and bought an app called zeezap from google play. It is a day night visual dementia clock. Has been fantastic and he hasnt got up through the night since we started using it.

It really sounds like I am in the exact same position. My father in law just got up at 10:00 after going to bed at 8:30. He had just showered and when he got up he said that he was sorry that he had overslept. I told him that he had not overslept because it was ten at night. I will have to look into the android tablet and zeezap. I hope it helps here.
