Senior cell phones are becoming more popular. Seniors and elderly folk are warming up more to these cell phones as their choices as to the phones available grow. One of these choices is the Just5 and it is a simple and affordable cell phone for seniors by design.
Introducing the Just5
Just5 was designed specifically for seniors, or people with hearing or eyesight problems. This phone was well designed for the elderly and has many features, such as:
- Big buttons for easy dialing
- A “speaking” keypad, which confirms the buttons pressed
- Easy to use
- Easy to hold
- Emergency button
- Amplified sound (up to 100db)
- FM radio
- Simple keyboard lock
- Long lasting battery
That list may not seem large, but that is the beauty of the design; there is no confusing menus, options or settings that can confuse the use of the phone. It is a drop-dead simple phone.
The cell phone is also available in several colors, including white, orange, gray, red and black.
Senior emergency cell phone
The emergency button (or Personal Emergency Response System… PERS), allows up to five numbers for an emergency, including 911, and will send an emergency text to each of them, then dial each of them. It will also activate a siren on the phone. Another appealing feature is that once a connection is made in emergency mode, the cell phone will switch to loud-speaker mode.
