Holiday Gift Guide 2013
Seniors are among the few users out there who might prefer a flip phone to a smartphone.
My 83-year-old grandmother loves her iPad, but still prefers to use a simple cell phone rather than a complicated smartphone. Many seniors might balk at the idea of using a cell phone at all, since their landline is so reliable. Those who are with the times, however, know that having access to family members (and maybe even emergency services) anywhere they might be is essential. This list includes only the most basic devices that offer good call quality, solid battery life, and easy-to-use hardware. These simpler phones are all low-cost and perfectly suited to our elders. Last, we've included a selection from Jitterbug, which is a carrier that specializes in providing services for the elderly, such as help with their medications and other health- and wellness-related features.
