A nice way to help an Alzheimer patient.
Well, here's the story: My boyfriend lost his cell phone about 4 months ago and his daughter and I are not able to find him easily since then, so he gets in contact with us, but the problem is that he's not able to memorize our phone numbers, so, I made this key for him, I mean, he needs a key to open his house doesn't he?

  • How to make a charm / keyring. Phonekey - Step 1
    Step 1

    So I painted an old key with a methalic marker, please note: you have to wait for the paint to dry a little bit before painting the other side or the edges.

    Step 2

    After it was dry I put his daughter's phone number in one side of the key with her initial, waited for it to dry a little and then, I put my number in the other side of the key.

  • Step 3

    When it got dry I covered it with Nail Varnish, because my first attempt proved that the markers by themselves were not enough to be permanent. I let the key dry and put it in my boyfriend's keychain, next to his house key. He didn't like my subtle reminder that he has a really bad memory, but at least he is able to locate us without any problem =D This key is really easy to make, but it takes some time to wait the dry process between each step =S.

An excellent idea for the "forgetful" people in our lives. Could be a great idea for a child, too; or a teenager, you know, just in case of an emergency when they can't remember an emergency phone number-you may have stumbled upon a GREAT IDEA!! Thanks for sharing!

HAHAHAHA Thanks for adding my project to your fav-s =D. It's complicated to have a boyfriend with bad memory, unless they make u laugh because of the same. God said love them, never said anything about understanding them at all LOL
