Best phones for seniors and elderly are chosen based on ease of use for those with Dementia, Alzheimers, tremors, MS and the technology challenged in mind.
Many seniors and elderly have difficulty understanding the newer technologies, and just choose not to use them. We don't want our senior citizens left out, or become lonely or isolated because they can't understand the newer phones with a myriad of little buttons, symbols, menus, scrolling and selection.
Just the basics please, easy to understand, simple phones, that is what many seniors and elderly prefer. It will also make the lives of their family members easier too, knowing mom or dad can make and receive telephone calls with an easy to use and understand phone. Many of these phones are also suitable for nursing homes, allowing your loved one to still connect with family and friends.
