Daylight Savings Time
Much has been said about Daylight Saving Times, many consider it to be a simple and important feature that should be built into our clocks.
It could create many problems, more than it is worth. First, it is a politically fragile subject and could be changed at any time by the government of the day; as happened in 1968 to 1971 something few actually remember.
Also the actual date for DST varies year by year. After much discussion we consider the choice of NOT including this feature for the sake of a 30 second effort to simply move the 1 hour forward or back twice a year. If the user is unable to make that adjustment, they can request a family member, or carer to do it for them.
Please view the map to note the complexity of worldwide time zones. We recommend reading the somewhat complex issues at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time
Alzheimer's & Dementia
What Day is it? and What time is it?
are familiar calls for the carers and family members of Alzheimer's & Dementia sufferers.
Day clocks are reported to be an effective simple solution by displaying the day has shown to be a great help!
Help in the design was provided by both carer and sufferer for us to develope our Digital Calendar Day Clock.
Often referred to as the best "Dementia Clock" for being the clearest easy to read display.
Customers tell us, this is exactly what they wanted!

What the Customers say! - FEEDBACK
Wow, I can't belive how fast that was - my mother received the clock yesterday! Ordered on Sept 10th - here in Canada on the 13th - Thanks for the quick service, Diane
Hello Bob, I just wanted to let you know that we have been using the two clocks we bought from you a little while back and are extremely happy with them.
They are simple, clear and have all the information that my mother needs to be able to remember where she is in time. They are so well designed. You have done an excellent job. Thanks again and I hope your business does very well.
By the way when we were looking for clocks it seemed crazy to me that we had to go to England to buy them as there are so many dementia sufferers in this country. Perhaps you might think of contacting Alzheimers Australia (or any other bodies in Australia) and see if they might consider endorsing your clocks or buying them. I don't know if that is something they can do, but it might be worth contacting them and seeing if there are any business opportunities for you here. Even if it's just recommendations. I'm happy to tell them how happy we are with the product!
We have plenty of people who could no doubt use them in this country. Anyway, it's up to you but I really wanted to give you some positive feedback on your clocks. We are so pleased with them, thank you.
Best wishes, Tatyana. Australia.
If anyone like me has a relative with dementia this is the clock to buy. My sister inlaw was losing the ability to know what day it was now she only needs to look at the clock. What a buy very pleased, it also tells the time but that is not an important factor.

She could not wait to come down today and find out what day it is, instead of living in a woolly fog and wondering all the time. Many thanks for your great product and brilliant service! Best wishes, Penny
THIS CLOCK HAS MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE TO MY FRIEND, FOR WHOM IT WAS ORDERED. SHE WAS BECOMING VERY CONFUSED AS TO THE DAY AND THIS WAS UPSETTING HER GREATLY. NOW SHE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT DAY IT IS AND SHE FEELS MUCH BETTER.
Ordered on 10 December arrived on 12th. Excellent service when considering the time of the year. The clock is for a 104 year old friend of mine who is resident in an Old Folks Home, previously he and some other residents often asked me what day it was when I arrived to visit my friend, now they ask him! A fantastic item recommended for all who need the occasional prompt.
Excellent clock. Ideal for an elderly relative who may be getting confused.
Delivery the following day - extraordinary!! My mother is delighted with the product.
My Dad has dementia and this calender is the only thing that has helped him keep track of dates so he knows what he should be doing. J.W.
Was really pleased with how quick the clock arrived as it was a birthday present for my mother in law. She was extremely pleased with it and helped her a lot with know what day of the week it is. Would highly recommend as it is clear to read, a good size and quiet discreet. E.P.

It's just arrived, and it's exactly what we've been seeking for my 89 year old mother with mild Alzheimers' - You've got an excellent product and it deserves to sell well. thank you !
Excellent item, bought it to help an elderly relative with memory problems and it has been a really big success. It is quite expensive but looks great, is easy to use and well worth the money
The Digital Calendar clock is great. and was delivered speedily and nicely packaged. Would recommend both the seller and the product. - Excellent.
Absolutely delighted, it is so clear and uncluttered. My father was also delighted and felt a sense of relief to know that he would know what day of the week it was!
I recently purchased an LED day/date clock for my mother. She is extremely pleased with it as it is very easy to read. Many thanks for such a brilliant product.
My mother is 89 and was struggling to remember the day of the week. Because this clock has the day displayed in full it works wonderfully and has helped to reduce Mum's confusion. Mum has quite good eyesight and is very happy with the product which she can see so clearly.
Your Digital Calendar day clock is perfect for my mother who is in early stage of dementia.
Is there a stockist here in Australia or can i purchase it online from you?
Is there anywhere I can buy the Digital Calendar Day Clock in the USA?
Superb clock - my mum has Alzheimers and days of the week are just one of the things she no longer has the capacity to remember. This is fabulous and has relieved some of the strain. Many thanks.
Really impressed and just what my mother-in-law wanted!
The clock was just as it was described - very clear and should save my mum from ringing up every day and asking what day of the week it is. It doesnt matter if she forgets the day, because now she is the only one that knows she has forgotten!! Friends and relatives that have seen it think it is great as well. Well worth the price...
Delivery within a week to New Zealand, now that is what I call great service. Thank you so much, it will make my partner's day when she opens it on her birthday.
There are far too many feedbacks to include them all, but we thank everyone for your kind words about this product.
This has been a true case of listening to customers and creating a product to fit the bill!
