Grandma may not be keeping up with technology at the rate with which it's progressing, so getting her a Talk Mobile Phone may be an action worth considering.

This small brooch-like gadget is designed with the elderly in mind, because it performs one very simple function. It is extremely successful in calling just three different phone numbers with the turn of a dial and the depression of its central button.

The disc-shaped device has a system of notch notations where a single notch corresponds with a caregiver's telephone number, and the two and three notch markers call another pair of friends or family members. Once the knob is pointed in the desired position, the Talk Mobile Phone by Tom Harries will allow a senior in distress to press its center to ring for help.
