When we think about mobile phones, the things we think of
most are corporate employees and chatty teens. What we
normally don’t think about is our aging community and what
their needs may be.
Senior citizens in this country are now a major group that
companies are marketing mobile phones to. In fact, some
companies are even designing more senior friendly phones.
The new phones are designed with just the basic mobile
phone functions. Calling out, receiving calls and storing
numbers in the phones internal phone book are the standard
This paired with larger buttons for easier dialing make
these phones ideal for senior citizens. Now grandma doesn’t
have to spend 45 minutes trying to find a phone number and
another 30 trying to see and push the tiny number buttons
to call out.
It is hard to imagine your grandmother walking down the
street chatting on her cell phone, but in the case of
seniors, these phones may come in handy, maybe even save
lives if used responsibly. These mobile phones are a
definite asset when a situation like car trouble arises.
So now when our relatives reach their golden years and
decide to take the RV and travel across country, they can
do so with peace of mind that in the event of an emergency,
they have 24-hour contact with civilization.
It will also give peace of mind to their loved ones. They
can travel safely knowing they are always in contact in
case of an emergency.
