Picture Memory Phones & Phones without Dial Pads
Even in the beginning stages of dementia, those with early onset Alzheimer's and elderly seniors, begin forgetting phone numbers. They may need assistance to remember who they are calling. Our memory picture phones and dial-less phones are a great aide to the caregivers as well. Our SMPL photo phone for seniors can be programmed with photos and still allow users to dial using the extra large buttons below.
The telephone is an appliance that has been in use since childhood and forgetting the number becomes very frustrating for our senior population. Phones for dementia, like the memory photo phone can solve these issues. These memory phones hold photos of family and caregivers and the buttons can be programmed to call the person whose picture is placed there.
These phones come in two varieties; the Picture Memory Phone that just has pictures and the Memory Phone (good for all seniors and elderly as well as children) that have numbers and pictures. The picture memory phone can also be programmed with all the buttons only going to one number so that the "loved one" cannot make any random calls and there will always be an understanding, caring voice at the other end.
Many seniors are up at night and are seduced by the infomercials, calling to order what is being advertised. By programming all buttons to one number or by using our call control phones and devices, you can control this pattern of behavior that can be common in the elderly and those with dementia. Our Senior Cell Phone is also a great solution as the caregiver has complete control of inbound, outbound and 911 calls.
Our simple and affordable Dial-less phone only receives calls. In the middle and late stages of Alzheimer's, confusion can lead to worse situations with your loved one anxious at the simple thought of dialing out or calling at inappropriate hours when they are unaware of the time. Calling can also be controlled remotely with TeleCalm, which replaces the need for a phone line and allows your loved-one to keep the phone they are familiar with.
