I bought the Jadco Calendar clock for my dad, as he used to tick the days off on his wall calendar, then as his memory got worse, he could not recall if he had ticked it or not! He LOVES this clock as it helps reassure him about what day it is, and helps re-orient him when he knows people are coming in to help Mon, Wed, and Friday but he cant recall which day TODAY is. Worth every cent. I know it might seem expensive but there is no price you can put on peace of mind.
