Dementia / Digital Diary Description

Worth More than 5 stars Absolutely tremendous app. This is so useful for my mother there is nothing that compares to it, and the developer is incredibly helpful and communicative. I leave reminders and messages for my mum every day and it really does make a difference for her to be able to have the ready reference. I can’t speak highly enough of this app, and if I didn’t have a previous smart phone to leave at my mums, or if that ever packed up I would buy a small tablet to replace it just for this app. Thank you very much indeed.

Here we provide Dementia / Digital Diary V 2.22 for Android 4.0++ Inspired by my experiences caring for my mother and father in law, both of whom have suffered from dementia / alzheimers, the Dementia Diary was written to help improve both their lives and the lives of their carers.
When installed on a device (phone or tablet), the App can be used like most other clock apps as a full time clock, focusing on the day and time of day (morning, afternoon, evening, night) rather than the details (hours, minutes, seconds, date). Unlike the others, it also provides a highly configurable diary facility!

Dementia Diary provides a live and remotely configurable diary/calendar facility. Using any shared calendar configured onto the phone/tablet the app will display the text of the next three calendar events occurring either today or tomorrow (configurable) and any "all day" events. These events are set up using a device configured calendar and as such can be updated from "anywhere", provided an internet connection is available on the device.

Out of the box, Dementia Diary requires no set up or configuration and currently supports the following languages;English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Danish and Romanian.

Other Features available through simple configuration mechanisms are:
Simple screen lock option – press top left five times to lock, five times to unlock

Colour Configuration: Various screen colour configurations are available including a variety of background colour options that can be used to stimulate viewer senses. Cycled using a long press on the "top right" text of the screen.

Display Configuration: Different types of information can be provided according to the users level of comprehension. Cycled using a long press on the "centre" text of the screen.

A Configuration screen (long press in the "top left" text of the screen) allows the following settings to be made:

Time of Day: The text displayed for different times of the day can be overridden and the start time configured on an hour by hour basis.

Speech: Speech can be enabled to read out a calendar event or the time and date (short press on the information).

24/12 hour mode:

Today only mode: This allows the user to elect to view only today's events and not tomorrow's.

Alarm Facility: For individual calendar entries with the alarm activated, the next event can be highlighted in red (15 minutes before and for the event duration) and subsequently acknowledged by the user (long press on the entry). The calendar event will be updated with the time of the acknowledgement. Note: for multi-event calendar entries only the highlight will be removed, the calendar event will not be updated.

Banner Text: – A "marque" (scrolling text) message in the middle of the screen can be set. This will default to the first "all day" event on that day or, if no all-day event a default text message can be set.

Text capitalization: Options to capitalize the Date and Time and calendar events

Text override: for "no events" message

Background Picture: A picture, selected from those available on the device can be used as a background image for the screen.
Note: Providing an allday event in the calendar with the following text format will force a specific picture on the device to be displayed for that day. @DDpicturefilepath where picturefilepath is either an absolute file path (starts with a "/") or a relative path from the external storage device. e.g. @DDDCIM/Camera/IMG_1.jpg

Starting any event with the "[" character in the calendar will make it only visible when the event is active

A Reduced information night option that displays date and time only and dims the screen during the night phase.

An advanced option allowing a user to set all of the fonts sizes is now available – Beware!
Defaults to "15:15:25:25:15:15:10:10"

A Note of Warning: This application is designed to be "always on". Please ensure the device is mains powered as it will drain the battery life.

Privacy Statement – Only data saved in the calendar is shared online!

if there is any problem please let us know. Write your problem in comment box below.

Editors Notes

Tremendous help for Dad Many thanks to the author for making this app. It really does help keep Dad connected to the world. Removes the confusion about what day it is. Shows Google calendar items to remind him about upcoming things. This is far superior to any similar dedicated clock being sold.
