We're getting the hang of it. Super-visible display, accessible to several people, great for multiple caregivers. The calendar could be improved, for those in the early stages of cognitive loss, so that the person could see the appointments further down the schedule. One of my mom's needs would be to have the weather forecast, that would be great.

The most complete clock on the market. My father likes it very much. He likes the messages we send him. The learning curve was gradual, without difficulty. Really nice product.

The clock has been so very helpful for me and my elderly parents.

It is enabling them to remain living in their own home for longer. And please pass along to the development team that they did a great job on the user interface. It is so easy for me to add and change things in the App, very intuitive. Thank you again!
