Buying a cell phone as a gift for your grandparents can be daunting. Several companies exist, though, to empower seniors by adapting technology to them rather than expecting them to adapt to technology.

This new article covers cell phones and plans from Doro, Jitterbug and Consumer Cellular.

Designed with the help of a professor in ergonomics, Doro cell phones have oversized buttons to make dialing easier with stiff hands and low vision.

The Jitterbug J cell phone, on the other hand, features a large, backlit keypad for easy dialing along with a bright color screen and easy-to-understand menus. Learn more here about cell phones specifically designed for seniors!

I came across TracFone holiday bundle on a random visit to the Dollar Store. For only $10, you get the phone, a case plus a handsfree headset (ok..she’ll never use the headset but hey, it’s free). So, needless to say, I bought one as one of the gifts for my grandma and if she doesn’t use it or accidentally leave it somewhere, it’s no big deal!
