VTech Careline Phone System Review and Giveaway

We have all seen that infamous- "Help, I have fallen and I can't get up "commercial! One thing about them-they cost fees. Monthly fees that our senior citizen family members really can't afford at times. Did you know that VTech has Senior Citizen  Phones that don't cost a monthly fee? All they have to have is a live phone line! Recently, VTech asked me if I would like to review their new CareLine Home Telephone System. I could not pass it up. Not only does this help with independent living, but it helps us keep in touch when we are not able to be around. Let me tell you more about it!
The Large Button Corded Phone has some great features such as:
-Photo Dials -Never forget whose number is whose. Program four frequently dialed phone numbers and attach a photo to each for convenient, one-touch dialing.
-Voice Announce Caller ID- Always know who's calling, even when you're in the other room. All devices announce the names of your callers through the speakerphones- including the safety pendant.
-Digital Answering System- Missed calls? The touch of a button retrieves all your messages.
Check out the features for the Careline accessory handset!
-Audio Assist- Need more help hearing what's being said? Use Audio Assist on our hearing-impaired phones to temporarily boost up the volume while you're on a call.
-Large Screen- The cordless handset features a large, high-contrast display to make it easier to see who's calling.
-Big Buttons-  Oversized, lighted buttons make the handset super easy and comfortable to use.
My favorite feature of the Careline Phone System would be the portable careline safety pendant! This is amazing because it can be charged on the base and it allows seniors to conveniently make and receive calls, listen to voicemail messages, review missed calls or receive programmed reminders for medication, appointments or other events. 
 To use it you turn it on and the numbers you have programmed on the main corded phone on the photo dial are the numbers that will be called when you click 1 or 2 on the safety pendant. It also has voice commands! Command it to play messages and reminders, list missed calls, dial programmed numbers or confirm date and time.
What do I think about it? Not only is this 100% affordable, but it is an amazing idea! My husbands grandparents will now be able to keep in touch in style, and we will be able to be assured they can get in contact with just a touch of a button! This beats monthly fees for a subscription service and is worth every penny! It is super easy to set up.

  9. What is my favorite feature? EVERYTHING! Top of my list of favorite is the voice announce caller ID. I use to watch my father in law pick the ringing phone up and while trying his best to see who was calling, (caller ID) the phone would stop ringing.

  11. I have two favorite features of this phone. The first one is the video buttons. I've never seen anything like them on a land line phone! My other favorite feature is the portable careline safety pendant. I like that it will remind people to take their medications and give reminders for appointments.

  21. I like that there is a safety pendant. IT's a whole lot better than the monthly monitored systems especially if the person it's for isn't quite in need of that yet.

  22. I really like the portable pendant. My grandfather used to be a really sharp man, but his health has declined quickly over the last few years. My grandmother doesn't like to leave him home alone for long because he might fall, remove his oxygen by accident or a number of other things. He gets upset when she is gone for a while and doesn't call, because he worries and gets fearful. However, his hearing is bad and he doesn't always hear her call. He also doesn't always dial her properly and he doesn't know how to listen to the machine anymore. The pendant, which basically does all of that at the push of a button AND is there for emergency situations when needed, is perfect for him!!

  23. My favorite thing is the pendant which my elderly mother really needs especially when she goes down the stairs to do laundry which I worry she will fall when no one is around. This would be perfect for her.

  24. Being able to reach out to someone is huge for me. I'm pretty healthy for my age (although I am considered disabled because of a degenerative nerve disease)& live alone in an isolated area in the country. About 3 months ago I got ill suddenly & was alone for 2 days. My doctor said it was life threatening so I would love to have this phone in case that happens again.
