new device offers comforts for dementia patients


Jeannette Twomey, inventor of the Kind Reminder, sent me an email recently to tell me about her product.  It's a little device that plays a recorded message with the push of a large button.  The caregiver can leave a simple message like, "It's Tuesday and I'll see you at 5 p.m." or any information that the dementia patient may need to access frequently.
The recorder is inexpensive and 5% of the purchase price goes to the Alzheimer's Association. If my dad was still alive, I'd have no problem shelling out $20 for this!  Maybe if he had had a recording of my voice to carry around, he wouldn't have forgotten me.   
For more information, visit the website or send an email to contact@kindreminder.com

Hi -

Thanks for visiting my blog. This is my first time seeing yours, and I laughed when I read your age...253. Me too! Here I thought I was the oldest living blogger. Actually I didn't give you the award as I'd never seen your blog(s). Karen gave it to you, after I gave it to her. I'm pretty new to the blogging world and don't know who started it. But it obviously is to recognize honest posting about whatever is on your mind related to your blog.

I see you have several blogs, which I'll check out. And I also live in Wallyworld, but the one in PA. Small world!
