So I my brothers and I, (we are all in our late teens early twenties), got an ipad for our grandparents this past year. We also had some trouble finding good apps for them, but we did find a couple that I figure I could share.
This one was great for the weather because it was so pretty, you just like to come and watch the pictures.
They read the obituaries almost every day, so we found this app that has obituaries from around the country. It was pretty easy to use, and also it was pretty, but it wasn't made for the ipad which was a down side.
Is that gluten free
My grandfather has is gluten free, so this app was great for him. It really is only good though if you are trying to be gluten free.
Those are only a couple, but I hope that helps other people looking for apps.

My fev. app is "Med Reminder"
My father is 87 and almost deaf and my mother is constantly yelling to make herself understood. She writes things down to show him but that takes a long time.
Is there an ipad speech to text app where she could speak and it converts into large easy to read words on the ipad screen?
I've been digging around on google and couldn't find anything like this
I realize this thread is pretty old, but if anyone is still looking for apps for the elderly I'm the creator of an app called Postcards. It's a simple way for people who don't have any computer experience to receive photos, videos (inc. YouTube) and messages from their loved ones. My 91 year old Grandma uses it every day (although not before she cleans her house, she's a disciplined woman!). If anyone is looking to keep in touch with their elderly relatives easily, then I'd love to hear what you think of it. If you search "postcardsapp" on google you'll find us!
Here's what I was dreaming for today as an app for the elderly.
I have a couple of parents that are getting very forgetful. They often need to be reminded what day it is and what they have to do that day.
I'd love a very simple almost non-interactive app. It would say In big letters the day of the week and the date. The day of the week is easy to forget when you don't have a work schedule.
Then, below that there would be the appointments for the day (if any) or it would say "no appointments today."
The appointments could be entered remotely by the children or caretakers. Maybe through Google calendar or Apple iCal. That way the children could help manage their schedule remotely and the parents would be to refer to the calendar by just looking at it.
The iPad would hang on the wall and always be plugged in and on. Maybe they would have to touch it to make it show but that's about all the interaction they would need. Or they could touch it and see the next days or a monthly view and scroll around but left alone it would return to a very basic, very easy to read simple daily calendar where they could see everything for that day at once and possibly the next at once.
I'm thinking this might help their anxiety of trying to remember what they have to do the next day.
Thanks for reading this.
Whilst you await a suitable answer you could for the time being use the default 'Clock' app.

Messages could be entered as 'Alarms'. You can have as many as you wish and would give off an audible alarm when due.
All Alarms would be visible on the daily timed grid below the large numeral time.
To display a particular alarm simply tap on one and to the left of the time would show the Alarm message.
To view all Alarm messages simply tap on 'Edit' where here is provided a list of all message alarms. You can delete any Alarm messages from the Edit area.
Hope this may help.
.........I don't always get your questions right.... but you'll certainly know I've tried.
So set up calendar entries with a reminder. They would be notified on the notification area and an audible bing. Do it all the time for myself and my forgetful,other half.
