Recently, when I was out of town I tried to call my senior mom. I called her at the house, but got no answer. I called her Jitterbug cell phone for senior citizens and still no answer. Years of caring for elderly parents, not to mention raising teenagers, has taught me not to panic, so I prayed about it and stayed busy. After a short while, she called and explained she had been busy with senior gardening projects. A big storm was coming and she needed to move her garden wagons full of pots into the garage. My phone call arrived when she couldn’t get her hands into her pocket, but she called as soon as she was done.
I was happy to hear her, and so very glad she did have her Jitterbug – one of the best cell phones for senior citizens – so she could hear me and call me back so easily. It really takes a load off my mind when I have to be gone. She’s never yet needed to, but I really love that in an emergency all she just has to dial is 0 and the operator will come on the line to call anyone on her list or even call 911 for her. How easy is that! About the only thing easier is a medical alert device like an emergency pendant or wrist watch. Then again, at the moment, those are primarily limited to just working at the home. However, the Jitterbug cell phones for the elderly go everywhere! For those of us dealing with the issues of caring for the elderly parents in our family, that’s a real boon!
There are a couple of other new cell phones for elderly parents that I’m starting to hear about and hope to check into further. So far, though, the ones I’ve looked at don’t offer what we get with the Jitterbug, making it the best cell phone for the senior citizens in our family.
We truly consider the Jitterbug to be an essential tool in my senior parents gardening toolbox! It gives my aging mom the freedom to go out and about, knowing that, in her pocket, help is only one button away!
