About this app

This clock app makes it easy for people with dementia or Alzheimer's to keep track of time. It can help to avoid phone calls in the middle of the night! You can set up periods of the day such as Morning, Afternoon, Tea time etc. For each period you can say when it starts and finishes, and which days it occurs.
Although it comes set up with reasonable default values it is highly configurable.
The display can give just the day of the week and the period of the day. There is also the option of displaying the actual time and/or date if required.
You can adjust the sizes of the various display elements to suit your needs and also select a contrasting colour scheme for some periods, e.g. dark colours during the night.
Full help is built into the app. You can save your settings to a file for backup or transfer to another device.
The idea is based on the old Unix fuzzy clock and research done by the Bath Institute of Medical Engineers.

Thank you so much for this app. I'm trying to set something up for my father with dementia. I really like the configurable periods, but would love additional ability to make choose whether a line of text is all caps or upper/lower case for readability. Also, I wish this was a screen saver on the lock screen rather than an app you have to launch all the time.

Close but no cigar! I uninstalled this but many people will like it I could not get the background colors to change and also there is no calendar for year display that would have made this perfect. My search continues for the best clock app

Great app for my elderly Mom. Converted an old tablet into the perfect wall mounted day clock. The poor soul would sometimes wake soon after falling asleep and not know whether she slept in or simply woke up. Now she always knows what day of the week it is and is never late for a meal or recurring activities. A skill not many in a nursing home can demonstrate. Cannot thank this developer enough!!
