It's great. My mother loves it. She's very happy to be able to situate herself better in time and to receive messages from us. Very useful with our in home support as well.

It is an excellent assistant to help the person with Alzheimer's disease and his or her caregiver vs. the date, time, appointments, taking medication and everything! However, the annual fees associated with it are unfortunately not within the reach of everyone... and that's a shame because it's an indispensable aid!

My 82 year old mother really appreciates this modern day clock with its clean lines. The display (day, date, time, time of day) helps her keep track of time and can be read from a safe distance. The read aloud option is very appreciated! Easy to program and use. Thank you Eugeria for this beautiful creation! A small downside: - I would have liked to be able to program a reminder right into an event instead of having to create an extra reminder. The additional reminder offers more options though.
