Dementia Diary

To help you care

A simple Clock and Calendar for sufferers and carers of Dementia

"Thank you, this app helped me and my mother so much. She stopped having to ask me the same questions over and over all day. It enabled her to relax and enjoy the moment with out having to spend all her energy trying to keep appointments in her head. It enabled her to trust that I was on top of things. She could see that I was covering the things she was struggling with. It made her feel secure in a world that had some order again. She became lighter and our conversations became richer. Amazing App that transformed our lives."
