My elderly in-laws are very hard of hearing but refuse to wear a hearing aide. Therefore, it can be extremely frustrating for all parties to communicate during our phone conversations.
The Clarity® D613™ 6.0 Amplified Cordless Phone with Digital Answering Machine is the perfect solution especially for seniors, because the Clarity Power™ technology is amplified “up to 30 decibels in the high frequency range”. This phone is much louder than a standard phone and it does it without sacrificing clarity.
I appreciate that this light weight phone is endorsed by the Arthritis Foundation because it is designed to be very easy to use with large, easy to push buttons with these features. In my experience (I worked with seniors for 14 years), these features make it significantly easier to use for the elderly, sight impaired, hearing impaired and/or those persons with special needs.
Additional features of the Clarity® D613™ includes:
- Digital Answering Machine (I found this very easy to program and use)
- Speakerphone with intercom between handsets
- Call Waiting Caller ID
- 30 name and number phonebook with nine memory buttons
- English, French and Spanish menu language support
- Expandable up to five handsets
- Hearing Aid and T-Coil compatible with TIA-1083 Compliance
My father-in-law tested this phone and he absolutely loves it! His favorite features besides the excellent clarity and amplification is the bright ring that alerts him when he has a phone call. My husband and I appreciate that we can have a phone conversation with him in which we don’t have to constantly repeat ourselves and now our young children can even has a conversation with their beloved grandfather. It also gives us the peace of mind to know that our in-laws will be able to communicate effectively by phone in case of emergency since they live alone.
