Extending the possibilities...
The Dementia Day Clock for Digital Photo Frames, is designed to help people living with dementia, to enable them to recognise which day it is, along with the current period of the day - Morning, Afternoon, Evening or Night.
A Day Clock may not be suitable for everyone living with dementia. Using a commercially available Digital Photo Frame, along with the images available here, will help you find out if a Day Clock is suitable - free (apart from the cost of the Photo Frame). If the Day Clock does not prove suitable, the Photo Frame can still be used to display photos from the past, helping to prompt discussion about the times the person living with dementia, can still remember.
The files for the Day Clock are currently set up to display just the day and the period of the day. However, the whole system is flexible enough to provide other visual prompts at various times of the day.
A simple change, would be to replace the Night period so that it would say "It is now time to Sleep".
Then, there are other possibilities...
It is now time to Wake Up.
It is now time for Breakfast.
It is now time for Lunch.
It is now time for Dinner.
Each of these would display for an hour at the appropriate time, after which the clock would return to the normal Day and Day Period display.
I'm also looking into the possibilities of using Digital Photo Frames capable of playing sound files, so that an audible message is played at a specific time.
If you have any suggestions about improving the Dementia Day Clock for Digital Photo frames, please feel free to leave a comment.
