Big Button Phones
We are often asked to suggest products that disabled and elderly people have found useful for everyday living tasks. One of them is a big button phone.
Using the telephone to communicate with family and friends is of great importance, especially if you live alone and are housebound. If you find it difficult to use an ordinary phone because of vision, hearing, memory or dexterity impairments there may be a big button phone to help you.
There are big button phones with safety features such as panic and emergency alarms.
Some phones have picture buttons for memory and cognitive impairments.
For people with severe hearing difficulties there are phones with a strobe light alert and pillow shaker to indicate an incoming call.
Although the specification given of the phone below makes it quite expensive, there are variously priced models with features giving assistance. See more big button phone examples
