Mum has a weekly whiteboard calendar on her fridge that I write that weeks activities/appts. There is also clock beside her bed with the time, day, month and day of the week. For a few weeks now I have stopped writing the date on Mums whiteboard, as it seemed to confuse her more. If she maybe had a hair appointment, this date would be fixed in her mind, although most days she doesn't remember what day or date it is. Mum would constantly ask about the days and dates on the calendar, so thought it would be less confusing by just having days of the week only. Dad says Mum wakes from 3am onwards to the loo, and she goes through to the kitchen turning the lights on , checking her whiteboard before she goes back to bed. So today Mum says that her phone says July 3rd... why doesn't it say the 4th. When will it be the 4th? She said it really confused her. Told her once she is in bed at night and the clock strikes midnight her phone will change to the next day. She seemed happy with this explanation... so far What more can I do? I have seen suggested here a digital picture frame with some kind of clock with the day, date, month, on a memory card?? How does that work. Can someone find the thread? Has anyone found it successful. If I can do this , thought I could put it on the top of her fridge above her whiteboard?
