As my mom gets older, her agility is not what it used to be and her memory is slipping. She is getting more forgetful everyday, like locking herself out of the house, and not being able to recall where she puts things, which we all have been victims at time. But, what I worry most about is the "I fall down and can't get up" dilemma, and that she can't get to the phone to call for help.
We decided to get her a TracFone because there is no contract to sign, no termination fee, and no credit check. She only needs a simple phone for making emergency calls. Additionally, Tracfone offers the the Senior Value, which we thought was an excellent choice for her. It comes with extra large numbers so she could see clearly.
We started mom on a TracFone minimum plan of 50 minutes for $10 dollars a month, and if she ever needs more air time, anyone in the family can refill her cell phone on her behalf from thousands of retail stores across the country.
Since mom often visits her children in different cities, the Get into Everywhereness is also a plus. We can all keep in-touch with exceptional connection wherever she might be. For now, she is trying to get accustomed to carrying the cell phone in her pocket for safety precaustions, and to call for help when needed.
