We want to make sure that my husband's parents can easily call and communicate with us. However, with fading eyesight and limited mobility that can be a problem. So I was so happy to find out that VTech has created a wonderful product, the CareLine Home Safety Telephone System, that helps solve these potential problems.
The Careline Home Safety Telephone System consists of 3 pieces:
- Big Button Corded Phone with photo dialing, voice Caller ID and a digital answering system
- Cordless Handset with audio assist, large screen and big buttons
- Portable Safety Pendant that can make one-button emergency calls, is portable (can attach to a belt or be worn as a necklace) and has no monthly fees.
For more information on the Careline devices, watch this short video:
Each piece can be bought individually. If buying a set, there are two choices. The set in the picture above for a senior living alone or the set with an extra cordless phone and pendant for a couple.
It isn't easy being part of the sandwich generation. We worry about our kids no matter how old they get and we worry about our parents. My father was living alone for six years after my mother passed away and I would have felt so much better if he had something like this. I'm glad that we are now able to set this up for my in-laws. They love to talk on the phone and this will make it so much easier for them. And my husband and I will feel much better knowing they have the Careline Home Safety phone system.
