Using the telephone is something that many people take for granted each day. However, for those with limited mobility, hearing problems, or impaired vision, using the telephone can become problematic.
Telephones provide a way for disabled and elderly people to stay in touch with friends and family, which is an important factor in reducing the loneliness and isolation that some elderly people may experience. Phones also provide a way for disabled and elderly people to call for help when they need it, so it’s vital that they have access to a telephone that they’re able to use.
Standard phones have small buttons that can be difficult for those with limited fine motor skills to operate. Likewise, those with impaired vision may struggle to see the buttons and dial numbers, while those with hearing problems may struggle to hear the phone ringing.
