Is This Phone Suitable for Those with Visual Impairments?

The larger size of the buttons on the BigTel 40 Plus is ideal for those with visual impairments. The big button design means that the numbers will be easier to read, reducing the risk of telephone numbers being incorrectly dialled. This larger size is also suitable for anybody with reduced dexterity as they are easier to manage than smaller, traditional dialling buttons.

Does the Phone Light Up When Ringing?

The telephone is fitted with a light, which flashes when there is an incoming call. This light provides a bright visual alert to indicate that the phone is ringing, offering an additional aid for telephone use.

Is This Phone Suitable for Those with Dementia?

In addition to its visual and audio benefits, the BigTel 40 Plus is also a practical solution for anybody suffering from memory loss. It features a redial button, which reduces the need for the same numbers to be repeatedly entered in succession.

The user also has the ability to programme up to ten speed-dial numbers of their choosing.

Peace of mind

I bought this phone for my father-in-law
who cannot press buttons on a usual phone due to lack of grip with his fingers. The large buttons that can be preset to telephone numbers give us peace of mind and the loud volume lets him hear us if we need to call him. A godsend at these times, especially.

Excellent big button phone. Easy to set up and the big button direct dialing is easy to use. Its loud and easily visible. Particularly liked the 40db amp button. Just great. Used by grandparents and can now talk "normally" to them when they press the button. Would recommend.

Amplified telephone

Can’t fault speed of delivery- next day - or packaging. Easy to follow instructions for set up & use. ‘Slight’ problem when using amplifier in that there is an intermittent whistling noise like a hearing aid makes other than that Dad can now hear us when we call him.

A big hit
Friday, 14 December 2018  | 

I bought this phone for my father who has a combination of vascular dementia and Altzheimers and is also very hard of hearing. I was worried that he wouldn't be able to handle it. It turned out to be just the job. After initially having a problem identifying the photos he soon got the hang of it and has told me it is so much easier than his old phone. A bonus is this phone doesn't require a mains power feed, so he can't accidentally turn it off as he was prone to do with the old one.

Bought this for my father-in-law who is hard of hearing but won't admit it! Several previous phones were all 'faulty' because he couldn't hear them ring and then could hear what people were saying (likewise the sound on modern televisions is rubbish despite being turned up to max!!!) He does accept that his eyesight is poor but again it was down to faulty phones when he kept mis-dialling!!

This phone has solved all the problems. The ringer could do with being a touch louder but at least he hears it most times, and with the speech amplifier button pressed he can hear what everyone is saying without us having to shout. The large present buttons, with our faces on, are a god-send and he is thrilled that he can contact us easily.

As well as the louder ring, the only other improvement I could suggest is for the speech amplifier button to remain active for all calls once pressed, at the moment we have to remind him to press it at the beginning of each call.

The only downside to this phone is that it's confirmed to him that the problem really was all the other telephones/televisions because he can hear perfectly fine with this one!!!!
