It’s a giant clock displaying the date, day of the week and time of day. To the untrained eye it is a time-keeping device designed for seniors, especially for those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. But if you look more closely you’ll see that this clock offers much more than meets the eye. In fact, what we at American Lifetime originally considered simply as a giant clock has uses that far exceed the obvious. Read on and learn more!
Day Clock for Autism Sufferers
If you are a parent or grandparent, then you know that children initially have difficulty telling time. For them it is an abstract concept, where they are waiting and wondering when things will happen. The feeling that one minute is actually ten is all too common in children.
But this difficulty is even greater if you have a family member who is on the autism spectrum. Research has shown that people who have autism have an impaired sense of time regardless if they are an adult or child. Frequent questions such as “what day is it?” or “when are we having lunch?” an hour after they’ve eaten, are all too common. That’s where our Day Clock can help. With a clear display of the date, day of the week and time of day, this giant clock can provide autism sufferers with a clearer sense of the time of day. Instead of answering a question with “soon” or “when I get a chance”, you can now say “in five minutes” or “when it is one o’clock”. The autism sufferer can refer to our Day Clock and be accurately able to measure that passage of time. This will not only assuage their anxiety about when something will happen, but it will help them clearly understand the basics of how time works.
Day Clock for the Visually Impaired
If you or a loved one, experiences blurred, hazy, or double vision, then they might be suffering from some sort of vision impairment. Whether these symptoms are a result of cataracts, glaucoma or macular generation, by consulting with an ophthalmologist, they will learn the most effective ways to improve their vision. However sometimes, despite our best efforts and the help of top-rated medical specialists, the problem that affects our eyes cannot be resolved. Adults that face this challenge are often forced to redesign their lifestyles to accommodate this deficiency. That’s where we can help. Our Day Clock is more than simply a giant clock. For people suffering from a visual impairment, our time-keeping device with its oversized and prominently displayed letters and numbers is a welcome friend. Instead of relying on someone else, the Day Clock will enable its users the ability to independently tell the time; preserving one more element of their independence-something their impairment is so hungry to take away.
Day Clock for the Easily Confused
You might have always been someone who is easily confused; never quite able to answer questions in rapid fire or confusing words such as ‘incense’ with ‘incents’. Your friends might have laughed when you were younger, thinking that your confusion is cute. But now that you are older, perhaps retired, that confusion has not let up. Now let’s be clear, this confusion is not dementia. Instead it has to do with your brain’s neural mapping and you brain might lack the necessary neurons to properly transmit information. To help with this confusion many people purchase tools. One such tool is our Day Clock. More than simply a giant clock that displays oversized numbers, our tool is designed to eliminate the confusion around telling time. By prominently exhibiting the date, day of the week, and time of day, users can carry on with their day confidently. As well, our Day Clock offers five separate multi-function alarms that can gently remind our users about appointments, medication times or other scheduled events. Say good bye to confusion and hello to some much need clarity!
