Day Clocks I rather agree with' Jenniferpa'. Day Clocks are a good idea but in some cases the sufferer from dementia will often insist that the day is wrong and the clock malfunctioning. My mother wouldn't take any objective facts on board in the last three or four years of her illness. She had always been very self-opiniated trusting her own views above any one else's so whatever we did to orientate her to 'our reality' was dismissed almost straightway. It didn't help that she kept a diary - like she had for all of her life - and met any difference of opinion with 'Look I know I'm right - it's in my diary. Needless to say the diary was a reflection of her world filtered through her dementia. My brother and sister got very annoyed and frustrated about this and fought her every inch of the way - and nobody was happy.
