day-clockDay Clock

A simple dementia support tool that can tell someone what time of the day it is.

Overview

What does the Day Clock do?

People with memory problems can have trouble telling whether it is day or night, or morning or afternoon, or simply need reassurance about what day it is.

The Day Clock will... automatically show Morning, Afternoon, Evening and Night for each day of the week, and will display the right information as soon as you plug it in.

The Day Clock has been carefully designed to help people with memory problems to make decisions about how to plan their day, so the different information is displayed as follows:

Morning: 7am to  12 noon
Afternoon:  12 noon  to  5pm
Evening: 5pm to 10pm
Night: 10pm to 7am

 

Who is the Day Clock 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 Engineering 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 again.
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.
