Seniors and Dealing with Vision Loss

Vision Loss can be very traumatic for anyone at any age, but it can be very difficult for seniors. It affects a person’s ability to be independent and self-sufficient. There are a variety of programs, support groups, and devices that are available today for those suffering from moderate to severe vision loss. It is especially important for seniors to have a mobile device or some type of tracking system to help them get around with their limited visibility.  A medical or mobile device

Best Christmas Gifts for your Parents: A Simple Cell Phone

The holiday season is fast approaching and many people are getting ready to buy gifts for their loved ones. One of the most difficult gift-hunting task is finding the right gift for elderly parents. Some parents are picky and too particular and it would be good to find a gift that they can both use and appreciate. Generally, gifts for elderly parents are not that difficult to find.

You can think of some gender specific gift ideas, and some people would also love to receive gifts that relate to their interests and favorite hobbies. Before buying your parents a particular gift, think of their situation first. Most of them must be living alone and have gone into retirement. You might as well give them something that could entertain them, or a gadget that they could use to communicate with you more often. The elderly are often lonely, and it is important that you talk to them regularly. That is why one of the best gift ideas for your parents this Christmas might be a cell phone.

The Simpler, The Better

You might be surprised at the gift idea, because most elderly people are not in tune with today’s latest gadgets. You must be wondering how they would be able to use a cellular phone when most phones nowadays are very complicated and have too many features that are unnecessary, especially for senior citizens. The good news is that there are now phones that are made especially for the elderly, children, or people with disabilities. These phones are special because they are not as complicated as today’s smart phones, but have all the important functions of a phone that a person may need.

A cellular phone can offer a lot of benefits to your elderly parents. Aside from being able to communicate with you and their grand children often, they can use it for emergencies. Since they live on their own, having an accessible means of communication is necessary.

Choosing the right model of cell phone is very important if you are going to give it as a gift to your elderly parents. Do not give them smart phones that are too high tech and complicated to use because they might have difficulty in using them and become more of a hassle than a useful thing. Also, they have no use for some of the features that are present in today’s smart phones. It is better to give them something that is simple, but has the important and basic features that they need.

The factors that you should consider when choosing a phone for your elderly loved ones are that it should be simple, have a large interface and keypad, high speaker volume, easily programmable emergency system, a reliable prepaid or postpaid service provider, and a long battery life.
Make this Christmas extra special for your elderly loved ones. Give them a simple and trusty phone so that they can communicate with you more often.

Cell phones for kids and Kids Security

The greatest fear for any parent is the safety and security of their kids. If it would be permitted, they wouldn’t want to let them out of their sight. Unfortunately, we can’t monitor our kids 24/7 no matter how hard we try. There are times that they have to be away - school, a baseball game, a field trip,

What is a SIM card and why the Just5 phone will not work with Verizon.

 Not everyone knows what a SIM is, or that only GSM phones can use SIM cards (and here in the states that means AT&T, T-Mobile, or any pre-paid GSM service such as AirVoice Wireless or H2O Wireless and Pure Talk USA). This means that you can NOT take a Verizon phone & use it on AT&T, as Verizon uses the competing CDMA technology, and doesn't use a SIM. What is stored in the SIM on
