Mom can't hear anything I say on the phone (has a special hearing assist phone, but she's just too hard of hearing and not enough cognitive skills for text phone) but she calls a minimum of two and sometimes eight times a day...having forgotten she called 3 minutes ago. I bet I'm not the only one with this problem, so how do you solve this situation? She has told me she would be very unhappy if I remove the phone, so that's not an option I'd prefer to use. Plus the husband's mother calls 3 or 4 times a day as well...both usually in the afternoon/evenings. The upshot is our phone rings constantly in the evening. I have considered even getting a second phone line and putting a special message on it just for them every day, so they can call it 20 times and listen to the message. What do you think, have you tried?
