This has been a long-term goal

For more than a year, I’ve been researching and testing out phones that would be best fit my mother’s situation.

Even went to way of getting some of our family set up with webcams so we could communicate with Mom using audio/video format.

Unfortunately, she has declined since I started this research, and it took some forever getting their webcams up and running. Not to diss PCs, but having a mac made AV conferencing with Mom mindlessly easy. Lot of jumping through hoops to get PCs to accomplish both audio and video.

anyway: this week, i found the perfect phone for mom, and it’s one type of phone i was fantasizing about, yet couldn’t find: The Photo Phone. Nine speed dial buttons large enough to add your picture, so Mom can see who she wants to call. All she has to do is press your “face” button, and the call is made.

Where was this phone last year?

Now we have to test it out to see how Mom does with it. Plus, add a no-frills answering machine, so she can listen to messages. She can’t answer the phone herself, unless she’s right in front of it.

Good job! I remember looking for a phone with just extra large buttons for my mom when she had gotten bad, very very hard to find stuff.
