Best phones to stay in touch in old age -  TTfone Jupiter TT800 @ No. 1

Being older or having a disability that makes using standard phones difficult shouldn't mean having to be out of touch with friends and loved ones. 

 

In pole position is the TTfone Jupiter, which offers a simple solution to mobile phones for the elderly. Rather than bombarding users with software applications and unnecessary features, it makes it easy for users to call and text.

 

Older people with hearing and visual impairments will appreciate the little extras that the TTfone offers, such as a loud speaker and built-in speakerphone, as well as large separated buttons and bigger characters on the display.

 

As the elderly are more at risk of illness or injury, the TTfone also has an SOS emergency panic button, which can be programmed to call any number. However, the dedicated side switch will prevent the user from making unwanted calls from their pocket.

 

Perhaps the most useful feature is the desktop charging station, pictured, which makes charging the phone really simple.
