I know there's a phone company targeted at seniors, https://www.greatcall.com/. They make simple phones with large text and accessibility features, from what I understand. I don't know much about them, but maybe they would be a helpful place to look.

I realize this may be off-topic and possibly a duplicate query for all of you as I cross-posted to ITAccess/Educause.

Can you recommend technologies that seniors can use to stay in contact?

For example, if there might be vision issues (such as reduced visual field due to macular degeneration) combined with some memory issues < making navigating a complex email client difficult?

Or, best practices for cell phones or text messaging for clumsy fingers?

Thank you!
