How can I remember my TV programs if I have memory problems?

If you have memory problems, create your own TV guide. If you have difficulty remembering the time of favorite television programs, make a TV guide that lists in words and pictures the program, channel number and time slot for each day of the week. Post this list of programs next to the TV or favorite chair, perhaps in a stand-up picture frame like in hotels. To make a remote control easier to use, clearly identify important buttons such as on/off and channel changer.
