The Interactive Calendar has different icons of tasks that need to be accomplished in a day. The icons pop out from the wall and light up to reminds loved one with dementia get out of bed and do the task. For example, a "mushroom" pops out and loved one need to go to the dining room to have lunch, so he needs to push it back before leaving his room. When he comes back, another icon of task will pop out. Each icon have a related smell of the task that will help stimulate loved one's memory. Family caregivers can send voice message to the calendar and the icon with their photo will pop out and play the voice message until loved one listens and pushs it back. This feature is designed since loved ones do not have a cell phone to reach out.
The Interactive Calendar encourages loved ones with dementia to have an active life and a playful attitude to have a feeling of accomplishment. It strengthens the bonds between family members and loved ones. All the tasks done by the loved ones are received by family members so that they always keep an eye on their loved ones.
