One of the most significant forms of communication is the telephone. However, it all too often winds up being a difficult piece of technology for your loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Frequently, the issue manifests itself in the form of forgetting important phone numbers. You may not even know who they are calling at times. However, there are phones that are simple to use for loved ones with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Find out which ones they are here!
The Future Call FC-0613 Picture Care Desktop Phone
Your loved ones may dial numbers more easily with the Future Call FC-0613 phone. The phone has 10 ‘memory buttons’, which may be used to store 11 photographs. Each button can be set to dial a different phone number. A single button press will be all that is required to make a phone call.
The Serene Innovations HD-40P High Definition Amplified Photo Phone
Basic actions, such as making a phone call, may be challenging for those with dementia. The Serene Innovations HD-40P High Definition Amplified Photo Phone is created to remedy this issue.

The VTech SN5127 Amplified Cordless Senior Phone System
The VTech SN5127 is a cordless phone featuring an answering machine and intelligent number-blocking capabilities. This phone is ideal for those with vision problems, as well as those with hearing problems or dementia.
This cordless phone, like the rest of the VTech line, is designed with convenience of use in mind. The buttons are big and labeled clearly. There is a visual ringer and a caller-ID feature so that the user can see and hear that a call is coming in and can choose whether or not to answer it.
The VTech SN5147 Amplified Corded/Cordless Answering System
The simplicity of the design and accessibility features indicate that this VTech cordless phone is tailor-made for those of age. A simple corded phone plus a second cordless phone with a charging station make up this two-part device.
