Weight: 1.38 lb / 0.62 kg
Dimensions: 12.5 in x 14.5in
(31.75 cm x 36.83 cm)

The Frame of Reference Personal Information insert was created to help caregivers be more informed about their patient. The insert should be prominently displayed in the living area of an Alzheimer's patient.

The frame and insert combo are most effective in an assisted living facility where a single patient would interact with multiple different staff members on a daily basis. These staff members are responsible for dozens, sometimes hundreds, of patients and keeping track of each individual's life can be daunting. 

The insert provides a variety of informational details that can be retained by caregivers as well as family and friends. Anyone entering a room that has a Personal Information insert will be well equipped to properly interact with a dementia patient.

These details can be filled in by a family member or friend:

  • Preferred name
  • Favorite music
  • Former employment
  • Favorite food
  • Names of any children
  • Any other pertinent specifics

This insert has a male and female version that appear on each side of the single insert.

Manufactured from sturdy anodized aluminum, each frame comes with mounting screws and anchors, a non-glare PVC cover, and a firm back panel. The frames feature a snapping mechanism, which allows for front loading and removal of the hi-gloss, full-color information insert. Once mounted, the frame never needs to be removed.

My Frame of Reference™ was designed for two critical areas of care management, which caregivers of people with dementia face every day. We highly recommend that My Frame of Reference™ be ordered as a 2-frame set for optimum care. Use coupon code: 2SET20 at checkout to get 20% Off a 2-frame set!

Make A Difference
Did you know if someone has dementia, calling them Bob or Robert can make a huge difference? That’s right! Bob has been called “Bob” all his life, but officially he is known as Robert. Because of his documentation, his professional caregivers call him “Robert”, however he'd be much more likely to respond favorably if they called him “Bob”.

My Frame of Reference™ is a product that evolved from best care practices for people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. Essentially, dementia care experts found that there was a significant link between caregivers and people with dementia when familiarity was introduced to the care process. In other words, when the caregiver addressed the resident using personal details the resident exhibited less bad behaviors.
