Easy mobile phone with emergency assistance

The Doro PhoneEasy 508 is more than just a mobile phone that has been designed to be easy to use. This phone is a player in a niche sector of the market and has built-in emergency assistance features that potentially have life saving applications.

A recent experience of having an elderly relative falling to the floor and being unable to move for hours was enough for me to be convinced that the Doro PhoneEasy 508 has a critical role to play. This is particularly true for anyone with aging relatives who do not yet have or will not accept professional care or are receiving part time professional care. 

There is an extremely large demographic here which includes 11 million people who are aged 65 or over in the UK. Doro has been tailoring phones to this segment for many years and you can view the Doro phone range here.

This mobile phone of course does not fit into our ranking format which has been created to bring order to the smartphone ranks but it is truly worth a review and something we should all consider purchasing be that on behalf of or as a gift to an elderly family member or friend.
