I bought a cellphone for my mom and for the first couple years she was OK with using it and charging it. Within the past couple months, she claims its broken. I took it, tested it and it's functioning just fine. Gave it back fully charged and when the battery died, it's "broken" again. The charger cord is strapped to the bed within reach so there's no problems plugging and unplugging. At one point, she said her cord was stolen but it was near her all along. This battle w/ the cellphone led another sibling to buy their own cellphone for mom to use. (Only between the two of them, go figure.) Of course, same thing happens again. So now, I reach out to the community to ask about cellphone advice and ways to keep in touch with your seniors when between visits. For now, my Dad is adept with the iPad and I can FaceTime them both. But I miss the one-on-one conversations. Any good ideas or recommendations on phones for tech-challenged elders?
