They make that??

Well, we have been dealing with lots of issues lately related to the cognitive changes associated with Huntington's Disease. Alan forgets how to use the telephone, reprograms it with new numbers, or is certain that we have changed our phone numbers and will not answer if he sees the "old" ones on the caller ID.

With all the focus on dementia, and the needs of patients and caregivers, Kenny and I were sure that there was a phone that was so simple, it could be confusion proof.

Well....yes, they make such a thing! A phone with pictures instead of numbers (although the numbers are available if needed) and can be adapted for the hearing impaired. Alan has significant hearing loss due to strong antibiotics given to him in the hospital several years ago.

So, I ordered this phone. We'll see how it works.
