The ringing volume is adjustable from a normal volume up to an impressive 80dB, which will be loud enough for the vast majority of users.

Yes, you can add up to three handsets in addition to the units provided with this product. The Emporia GD61AH Additional Handset is the only handset compatible with the GD61AB Amplified Phone.

How Easy are the Numbers and Keys to See?

The large, high-contrast buttons and brightly illuminated LCD display of this phone make life easy for those with limited vision. The caller ID shows the caller's number and will come up with a name in large, bold letters if their contact information has been saved in the phone book.

What Other Products are in the Emporia GD61 Range?

Three other amplified products are part of the GD61 range, and all these phones are compatible with each other through GAP technology to allow you to create a phone network with up to 5 total handsets:

  1. The Emporia GD61 Large Button Cordless Phone for Seniors is similar to the GD61AB but does not include the digital answering machine. If the answering machine is surplus to your requirements then this is the ideal choice for you.
  2. The Emporia GD61ABB Amplified Corded Phone and Additional Cordless Handset is an old-school corded house phone with extremely large buttons and an additional cordless handset sold together as a bundle to offer fantastic value for money.
  3. The Emporia GD61AH Additional Handset is an extra handset that can be connected to any of the GD61 range for added convenience. This is ideal for people with limited mobility, as it allows extra-loud conversations in multiple rooms.

Is This Phone Suitable for Those Experiencing Memory Loss?

The combination of the clear LCD screen with caller ID and the phonebook can help those with memory loss to keep track of who is calling. You can name the contacts whatever you want, which is useful for making it as easy as possible to tell who the caller is. This feature also makes it easier for the user to call the correct person.

How Easy is the Emporia GD61AB Phone for Seniors to Use?

The Emporia GD61AB is designed to be as easy to set up and use as possible. Simply plug the phone into your telephone socket and the phone will do the rest. The digital answering machine is also made to be simple to use, with clearly labelled and easy to navigate menus.
