    Eugeria's Take

    A calendar clock with 4 customizable types of communication from a mobile app. The IDEM calendar clock innovates with reminders, messages, and event and note display functions. We are convinced of the positive contribution that this technological innovation can bring to people with dementia and their loved ones.

    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.

    Excellent service before the purchase to explain the features. After the purchase, I was contacted by IDEM to offer me a training session to prepare the tablet for my needs. Great customer experience!

    The fact that you can also choose the sounds of the alarm is wonderful. It allows us to choose the best tone for the recipient, like my dad who has hearing aids and doesn't always wear them and when the TV is loud
