I just bought my Mum a phone like this (the only place I could anything like it was Argos), and it seems to have solved that problem - a simple tip, but an easy one.chrissieL said:Hi,
I changed to an old fashioned corded phone with a cradle that had quite high sides ( just a cheap one) and that seemed to work quite well.
We have found this to be true for my father-in-law. He no longer has the ability to master new systems/equipment. Things like bath seats that require a sequence of steps to be performed (and require battery packs to be recharged) were not workable without the support of a carer (my mother-in-law).asaltydog said:There are no end of things advertised for older people like chair lifts, walk in

There is an amazing variety of nature, music and documentary dvd's out there, as well as familiar television favourites and classic movies. Even old time radio shows can be used to stimulate memories.asaltydog said:Springwatch programme on tv she recognised Bill Oddy & enjoyed watching
