week, here's a message i received from someone who found just what her
mother needed! karen

Here is the update on the clock that does the date and days of the week.
This clock is quite large, but is battery operated and light-weight. When my
mother no longer needs it, I will use it, myself.
The clock is large, plastic and rectangular. It gives the day of the week,
the month and the date in letters about 2 inches high. On the right hand
side, is a standard dial style clock, as opposed to digital. The hands are
large and easy to read.
I purchased this at the House of Clocks in Lynnwood, Wa. There were other
dial type clocks which also gave the day of the week, like a giant wrist
watch, with the day in an insert window on the right-hand side. These were
of various sizes, and quite legible for a person with normal eyesight.
However, the big one I purchased was excellent for a person with reduced
visual acuity. [personal information deleted]
I do think this clock with the large, clear letters for day-of-week, and
month can be a help in folks with short-term memory problems
