Easiphone, one of the UK’s leading specialist providers of big button phones for the elderly, making it easy to keep in touch with loved ones, removing the fear of isolation.
The Easiphone range of phones boast features such as amplified ringtones, large displays, hearing aid compatibility, easy grip handsets, easily accessible memory buttons and an emergency SOS button for total peace of mind.
The company has just announced the launch of an extensive range of TeliCare services available exclusively via its website. TeliCare from Easiphone can be combined with any phone purchase or ordered as a stand alone option.
TeliCare makes contacting loved ones and making important phone calls easy and stress free. One of the TeliCare services available on all Easiphone Geemarc big button mobile phones and landline handsets, is a pre-programming facility for up to 6 telephone numbers into the chosen device. So when the purchase arrives and is plugged in, friends' and family's contact details are already programmed into the speed-dial setting for complete convenience. Another of the TeliCare services from Easiphone allows for photos of loved ones to be linked to the relevant speed-dial button on the handset, making the function easy to use from day one. This exclusive TeliCare service is available for the one-off programming fee of £14.99.
Michael Kerstein, managing director of Easiphone, said, “The launch of Telicare services is an important landmark for Easiphone and something that is very close to our heart. I launched Easiphone after experiencing first hand how difficult it can be for elderly relatives to use small button phones and the subsequent problems caused by the difficulties faced with those wishing to communicate with friends or relatives. The TeliCare service takes this a step further and is intended to make life easier and give peace of mind both for the elderly and for their friends, relatives and carers.”
In addition to speed dial functions, most Easiphone handset come complete with an emergency call button which can be pre-loaded with the person to be contacted in the case of an emergency, be this a neighbour or a relative. This button also creates an alarm to get assistance.
