Summary: I bought this for my Mum who has very poor sight. I programmed it with her four favourite numbers and she can contact us easilly by pressing one of the four big buttons. The features for emergency calls to family or the emergency services are very clever. My Mum is delighted with it.
Summary: I bought a Doro 334 for my father who has a speech challenge and likes to go out on his mobility scooter. The Doro is quite a well made unit but, for an elderly person, the on off switch is a bit twee. The main problem with it however is that you cannot make up your own emergency SMS message. You have to make do with pre-programmed message: "This is an automatically generated alarm message from my mobile phone, please take appropriate action".
Summary: This mobile phone is a good size, making it easy to hold , the A,B,C,D, lettering is just perfect for elderly folk, especially, if they are sight impaired. I think it is expensive but it gives us the peace of mind that should our Father need us he can easily contact us.
Summary: We bought this phone for our 93 year old mother who is registered blind. The automatic answering and closing down is great but the keys could be improved to have raised A, B. etc as they are not easy for a blind person to feel they are pressing the right button. She has called the wrong person a few times as a result. With the buttons changed it would almost be perfect.
Summary: The phone is almost ideal, but I only have one niggle - an option to let all incomming calls (not just from the 4 presets) be automatically answered and go to hands-free would make it almost perfect. Delivery was very quick, but the phone was returned due to the intended users untimely death. The phone never having been used. The cost was promptly refunded, but minus a re-stocking fee. I have to say I'm not happy about that.
Summary: My mother is 88 years of age and in a home -- she has short term memory loss and arthritis in her hands -- this phone is superb.She only has to tap two buttons to ring me . It is so straight forward and easy to use.It is so nice being able to keep in touch with her - there is no way would she manage an ordinary mobile phone.
Summary: I purchased this pnone for my father who is in a nursing home and wanted a means of contacting members of the family. This phone fits the bill. Speech is very clear with excellent volume and the four pre-programmable speed dial buttons in lieu of a conventional keypad make the phone simple to use. Would highly recommend.
Summary: Das Telefon ist sehr einfach zu bedienen. Klasse überlegt, dass es nur so wenige Tasten hat. Die Programmierung ist ein wenig umständlich und hätte eigentlich über ein Menü über das Display erklärt werden können, da die Bedienungsanleitung nicht unbedingt immer griffbereit zur Hand ist. Eine Verbesserung wäre, wenn nicht vier Tasten oben angesiedelt wären, sondern es nur eine Taste gäbe für die Entgegennahme eines Gesprächs und das Beenden desselben.
