She wakes up and goes into a panic over if she’s eaten or taken her meds or if she needs to get ready for the day. Full panic, she has an iPad with the time and of course day lite savings time and shorter days have thrown her off.

MIL was struggling with this too - especially in November and March, when 6 am looks a lot like 6 pm LOL.

We found a digital clock that displays the day of the week, AM or PM, the time, and even the date. Do a search online and you'll find lots of choices. Be sure to read the reviews -- some models were not very visible when the person looked from a side angle.

This solved most of the problem for us - every now and then, we still get a 2 am phone call "My doctor's appointment is at 3:30 . . . Where ARE YOU??" But not as many as we used to!!

IMO she needs something simpler than her iPad, I found a website reviewing several clocks designed for those with dementia:

There are also medication dispensers that only open on a pre-set schedule. You could have her medications sorted into blister packs by her pharmacy or set them up yourself in a basic medication organizer, with these it is immediately apparent if meds are being mismanaged and she need greater oversight.
