Many people ask me about how to offer a basic music player or telephone for their relative (some resorting to taping down unnecessary buttons and switches on an existing player or phone).
This link came through on the Dementia Friends newsletter and it has a wide selection of products to solve problems that could improve living independently or with care.
Our local branch of Alzheimer Scotland sells a brilliant and basic mobile phone that gives a place to write the name of the person to call in a short list on the front plus a panic button to call in an emergency (also available here). The Alzheimer Scotland website shop has useful products tested by a circle of people.
Here’s another website alzproducts but shop around – some sites have the same product considerably cheaper.
