Great for Hearing & Sight Impaired
on March 16, 2017
Got this for my mother-in-law who has dementia. She couldn't use a cell phone anymore & we thought the familiarity would be helpful. She has problems with it, but it's not because this isn't a great product. The volume can be quite loud both on the ringer & handset. It also flashes. It doesn't have an answering machine, which makes it easier. There is also no calller ID. The one design flaw, in my opinion, is that there is a toggle on the top of the phone that turns the ringer off completely. I wish that was harder to get to. My mother-in-law turns it off, basically just because it's there. However, it still flashes even with the ringer off. Programming the speed dial numbers is easy & buttons are big enough to label in big letters. We didn't use pictures. We really couldn't find a better design for our 89 yr old mother-in-law.
