Calendar clocks are smart tools for elderly people to help them with their time awareness and support them so they can live independently at home for a little longer. For example, an alarm can be set on the calendar clock for when it is time to get up, take an afternoon nap, and go to bed. In addition to that, BBrain’s family calendar clocks also make it possible to easily get in touch with your loved ones, where and whenever you want.
BBrain offers two types of calendar clocks for seniors: the BBrain Family calendar clock G2 and the Basic Digital calendar clock. Below you can find a list with the reasons why a calendar clock indispensable in your life, the differences between the calendar clocks, and which calendar clock suits your situation best.
A BBrain calendar clock supports elderly people when their time awareness starts to decrease. The time, date, and daypart are displayed on the 10-inch screen, so it becomes clear at one glance what time it is, which day it is, and which part of the day it is. The BBrain Family G2 can, if desired, read the time and daypart out loud every hour or when the touchscreen of the virtual clock is touched.
The date and time can be read clearly because of the extra-large display of the numbers and letters on the 10-inch screen. Especially for the elderly with a visual impairment, there is a visual impaired theme that can be easily switched on or off. Once activated, the letters and numbers will be displayed in yellow on a black background for a maximum contrast.
A calendar clock is a great tool for seniors with (beginning) memory problems. For example, you can set alarms for when it is time to get up, take an afternoon nap, or go to bed. Should you find it useful to also be able to set alarms for medication intake, the user’s birthday, Christmas, and New Year, the Basic Digital Dementia clock is more suitable for your situation. With the Family G2 calendar clock you’re entirely free to set such reminders yourself. With the Basic Digital calendar clock these alarms are pre-set, but you can determine the time for the alarms yourself.
A calendar clock increases the self-reliance of the user. The support with time awareness and the alarms ensure that the user becomes more self-reliant again. In addition to this, their self-reliance is further increased with the Family G2 calendar clock, with which the family or caregivers can give support from a distance more easily, which results in the elderly being able to independently live at home for longer.
Calendar clocks also contribute to the creation of structure and overview. The continuous displays of time, date, and daypart provide an overview for the elderly. The Family G2 also displays the calendar which provides a clear overview of the planning of the day. The alarms that go off at the same time every day create structure and support.
Finally, the BBrain Family G2 calendar clock is the perfect tool to involve your (grand) parents more in your life, and to reduce loneliness. With this calendar clock you can support them from a distance by scheduling appointments, sending messages and photos, and making video calls. The app offers the possibility to get in touch where you want, whenever you want.
To use the Family G2 you need a subscription. There are various subscriptions that you can cancel monthly.
BBrain distinguishes itself from other calendar clocks and brands because the BBrain calendar and dementia clocks are made from the field. Specialists, nursing staff, users, and caregivers have all put their heads together to create a practical tool for the elderly. By incorporating the input of different areas in the development of the software and hardware, we were able to create a high-quality product that meets the needs of both the direct consumer (the user) and the surrounding people of the direct consumer (caregivers and nurses).
In addition to this, we will always continue to develop and improve our products, and we take feedback from our users seriously, because together we can create a good product that meets your needs as much as possible.
In addition to being suitable for consumers, BBrain is also suitable for remote care.
