I was hoping someone might be able to help me here.
I have a patient who happens also to be a relative of my wife. He has a pretty bad hearing loss and I have fitted him with some of the best hearing aids on the market today. While he is doing great, the phone is still a problem for him. He refuses to wear a larger aid, so telecoil is not an option.
So I just want to get him a high quality corded amplified phone. He is a very active man and has a large extended family. He needs a phone with at least 20 speed dial buttons on it (or some other kind of speed dial facility). He also wants caller ID. Those are really the main requirements.
If you know of a high quality business phone that would meet these requirements please post. I’d really appreciate the info. As you may or may not know, most phones for the hard of hearing are designed using the erroneous assumption that hard of hearing people are deaf, old, blind and stupid. So most of them are pretty basic with very few ‘complicated’ features.
My patient may be old and hard of hearing, but is is very smart and very active. He lives on the phone dealing with investments, family, and various other things.
Thanks in advance for your help. The best I could find is the StarPlus 45. If anyone can find something better than that I’d be very pleased, and so would he.
