Purchasing a clock

Here’s an interesting blog post from my caregiver friend Eric, whose father-in-law has dementia, about reading time versus telling time:


Eric offers a few guidelines about clocks for those with cognitive impairments:

1-  When selecting an analog clock, look for a clear, high contrast face.

2- Simple block numbers with distinct minute and hour hands.

3- No Roman numerals and no stylized designs that omit numbers.

4- For digital clocks, be wary of displays that present too much.
