Relish has launched its new Day Range to aid those with dementia in daily routine and timekeeping, helping people with dementia live independently. With clocks and memory aids among the top-selling dementia products, Relish’s Day Hub combines the two.
Ben Atkinson-Willes, CEO of Relish, said: “We want people to be able to remain independent in their own homes for as long as safely possible, which is why we’ve developed the Day Range to help tackle the issues of routine, awareness of time and independence.
“The Day Range has been created to positively impact those with early stage or undiagnosed dementia, and support caregivers. The Day Hub and Day Connect have both been designed as easy to use task prompters to help individuals maintain routine throughout their day, and remain independent at home for longer, prolonging the need for specialist care.
“Many with dementia need a reminder of the time of day, to eat, shower, or even turn a light off. Even more, because of the reduction in memory inherent with dementia, they often can’t remember if they have done important tasks like taking medication, with the real risk of overdosing on medication. This is why we felt it important to include a task list feature with a clock to offer reminders with alerts to complete each task, with a visible daily record of tasks completed. By being able to customise your daily tasks and be prompted when to do so, we hope that this delays the need for moving into a care facility.
“The Day Hub is fully customisable to the individual and their daily routine. You can tick off the task when it's done to feel a sense of accomplishment and achievement and keep track of routine, and never miss a task thanks to the alerts feature. This is also beneficial for any family member or caregiver to see what tasks have been completed throughout the day, allowing them to support the routine from afar and put trust and confidence in their loved one.”
