Staying in Control of Day, Date & Time

By Jane Verity © dementiacareinternational

One of the biggest challenges for people living with dementia is keeping track of the day and date. We searched to find a solution to this, for example: a calendar clock with an old-style clock face (not digital) together with a clearly displayed day and date.

We can recommend the best calendar clock we have seen so far – the Jadco BQ12 Calendar Clock.

This easily readable clock is ideal to hang at eye level – on a cupboard door – in the kitchen, preferably next to a whiteboard on the fridge showing planned activities or appointments. The person can then read the notes on the whiteboard and check the day and date to know if it is a plan or appointment for today or tomorrow.

The BQ12 is also a ready reference when checking the right date against the TV guide. This automatic calendar clock could be of immense value in either a person’s own home or in an aged care centre, just remember to place it at eye level.

The BQ38 is a compact version of the calendar clock suitable for bedside tables and bathrooms.

This model features a clock face that is easy to read and the day and date are clearly displayed. Free-standing or wall mounted, it runs on 1 x C size battery and has a reading distance of 15 metres. (330mmL x 100mmH x 60mmD)
