The is one of our favorite Black Friday through Cyber Monday deals for either older friends, grand parents, parents, family members or care givers.
People who care for senior family members or friends with disabilities are often frustrated that the person doesn't know how to use a new smartphone, forgets to charge the phone or can't hit the buttons. GreatCall has many options to help these individuals and care givers. We recently had a problem with my aunt who is close to ninety, her landline wasn't working and she didn't charge her cell phone, my cousin who lives across the country was very upset. Our aunt was fine but there was no way to communicate with her or tell where she was. These GreatCall devices offer peace of mind for the whole family. If my aunt had GreatCall services we wouldn't be so worried because we could have located her with GPS and we could have gotten a notice that the battery is low on her phone and contacted her to tell her to charge it.
