I was hoping someone could help, I have found a product called call genie, which is perfect for my mum as she has dementia and hard of hearing also can not turn the tv on and pressing wrong button. call genie is £500, just wondering how other people connect to loved one, with this product I can turn on the tv when I call then turn it off, mum just has to sit there and speak.

Has anyone used this product or any cheaper alternatives please

Hi @Helpme121 and welcome to Dementia Support Forum our friendly and helpful community. You'll find that our members have a vast array of knowledge about many areas of dementia. Unfortunately I have no knowledge about the technology you mentioned, but I am hoping that some of our more tech-savvy members will be able to help.

Likewise a warm welcome from me too @Helpme121 to this supportive forum. I too, have no knowledge of the product you mention, so cannot provide you with any help there either.
Just wanted to say hello really.

There are folk here who use lots of technology - if you don’t get a reply soon do post again in a few days. Sometimes people are snowed under and not online when ur request pops up.
