The Best Amplified Cordless Phones for the Elderly

Amplified phones aren't just useful for the hearing impaired. They are also highly beneficial to the elderly or those seeking an uncomplicated telephone.

There are many Amplified Cordless Phones to choose from. How do you know which one is the best fit for your needs or the needs of the senior person you're buying for?

At Hearing Direct, you will find a range of cordless phones for seniors to assist the ageing and hard of hearing community. This blog post highlights the special features and recommends some Amplified Cordless Phones for seniors.

Why Choose an Amplified Cordless Phone?

There may come a time when a standard telephone is no longer good enough.

As we age, it is only natural that our senses diminish and it is something that is very difficult to avoid. Age-related hearing loss is one of the most common impairments that can affect us later on in life. Not to worry, there are a number of items out there (especially on our website) to help maintain your day-to-day active lifestyle.

This is where amplified phones specially designed for use by seniors come in handy...

What is an Amplified Cordless Phone?

Cordless phones for the elderly have many varied features that make them more than suitable for older generations. Many of these amplified phones retain a modern contemporary design but incorporate important design features and functions.

Depending on preference and requirements, you can choose from an array of models with a solution that can be tailored to the individual needs. For example, phones with ringer and voice volume far exceeding that of generic phone models.

Most cordless phones for seniors appear more modern and contemporary compared to their corded counterparts, primarily linked to the more recent trend for wireless technology in the home. In addition, they offer the same set of core functions that are fundamental for communication. The added bonus is that there will be no cords restricting the location of your call, giving you the freedom to be on the phone in any room in your home. This convenience and mobility result in many people opting for cordless models.

What are the Benefits of an Amplified Phone?

By not only offering the key features present with any other telephone, amplified phones will greatly benefit those with hearing loss, visual impairments or those after an easy-to-use model.

  • Hi, Seniors don't want complicated functions in phone. They just want a phone easy to operate and must be user-friendly. These phones like by the seniors. Also they want expensive services on their cell phones. So these are the perfect phone for seniors. Thanks

  • Personally I don't like any of these phones because the main issue my elderly parents have is their eye sight. Their vision is very poor and they have different glasses for long range and close range. If they happen to be wearing the wrong glasses when the phone rings, they just can't see the number in the caller ID.

    • Hi Jim, Many hard of hearing phones have resolved this by including sensory triggers in the share of flashing lights to signal an incoming call, large backlit buttons to make ringing easier and large screens for viewing the caller ID. They are often sold to the hearing as well as the vision impaired. Thank you for your comment.
