Staying Connected Doesn’t Have To Exclude Seniors

Most of us are up to speed when it comes to using mobile phones, however if you’ve ever had the “get your elderly parent or grandparent to work one” experience, you might be a little frustrated. It’s worth the effort though and once they get past the hurdle of learning something new, they will probably love it. Several companies offer cell phones specifically designed to accommodate the needs of seniors. Some of the special features include the following:

A simple design that is easy to understand and doesn’t include all the bells and whistles younger people want.

Numbers that are displayed on large keypads and have large font sizes as well.

Some feature a large red emergency button to call for help and run off AA batteries if the Li-Ion battery runs out of charge. Some models are even hearing aid compatible.

One popular model has 4 number memories, speakerphone, 9 ringtones, vibrate setting, call timer and works with ear-hooks. Other even more simplified models, come without a numeric keypad and instead just have five large memory-buttons for calling family or essential numbers instantly. It comes with a neck-strap and is made of durable material. All of the major providers offer wireless plan options for 65+ seniors who don’t need all of the extra services or minutes because they may not use the phone that often. These plans are more affordable and have a limited amount of usage minutes compared to regular plans. If a senior wants the independence and security of having a cell phone for emergencies, staying connected to family, friends and their physician when they’re outdoors or shopping, consider one they can learn and use easily.
