Hello everyone
If you have any experience of mobile phones for elderly people with dementia, I'd be glad of some help.

I am looking for a very basic phone . texts not needed I just want to be able to call my mother. I am pretty sure she could get the green button to answer. I am also hoping to fins one where contacts (it would only be 2) were displayed by photo. I have seen online there is the Doro 7010 and the Doro 8035

Thanks, Alex

The Doro phones are good for simplicity but I haven`t had any experience of the phones you have searched @April100. I hope someone else may have had more experience.
