Have you heard the news? VTech has a new phone system that enables seniors to remain independent while helping them stay safe. When I was approached to evaluate and give feedback on the ‘Careline™ Home Safety Telephone System’ I was thrilled.

Yes. You are right. I am not a senior, yet. But my time is coming and I want this solution in place before I actually need it. VTech developed this system with guidance from the ‘Oregon Center for Aging and Technology’. This way they knew they were addressing the needs most important to seniors.

I have struggled with vision my entire life. I do not expect that will change as a senior. The Careline™ Home Safety Telephone System addresses that struggle by providing large screens and big buttons. My hearing has been compromised as well so I like getting the volume boost it provides with Audio Assist. It also comes with a pendant you can wear for quick and easy access to help should something happen and you cannot get to the phone. One button dialing and help is on the way.

As a senior I would also be looking at a cost effective way to have all of this without the monthly fees or contracts most services require. For seniors on a budget this is huge. The Careline™ Home Safety Telephone System also addresses that. No monthly fees or contracts. It can be used for both emergencies and as your regular telephone.

The Careline™ Home Safety Telephone System goes a long way toward providing children with aging parents some peace of mind. Seniors can maintain their independence while at the same time having quick and easy access to help. Living across the country no longer causes as much concern. You can live in California and your parents can live in Florida and both of you can have peace of mind knowing that help is available at the push of a button.

The system comes with 3 pieces:

  • Big Button Full-Featured Corded Base Phone that includes a digital answering system
  • Cordless Handset with large screen and big buttons
  • Portable Safety Pendant that can make one-button emergency calls
    • No monthly fees or contracts

Setup is quick and easy with the Quick Start Guide. Nice big text! Yes. It also comes with a more detailed manual.

  1. Hello there, Cheryl! When coming to your post this morning, I was moved by your presentation of this CareLine telephone system. I am impressed by the set-up and also by the fact there are no complicating monthly fees to raise expenses. This is a remarkable advantage for anyone needing a gentle outreach to further their independent living. Thank you for sharing this wonderful option, Much Love, Fondly, Robin

    My father in law has the same system! My husband set it up for him & is really impressed with how easy it is to use & the build quality of the equipment.

    This looks like a great tool for a senior needing that little extra. I have an uncle, who came to mind, that would love this. He has been looking for something similar so this may be just what he is looking for. Thank you for the great review. 🙂

      I love products that help keep people independent.

  4. There is such a need for this product for the Elderly. Love that it doesn't have hidden costs. Buy and use what could be better?

    • Geek Girl says:

      I love that there are no monthly usage fees.

    Wow! What a great product! And you spelled it out so clearly I am almost convinced I need it–well not for a few years. I wish something like this had been available when my great-grandparents–yes I said great–were still living at home. They lived together alone at their house until my Pap Pap was around 93 and my Nana had just turned 90. This product is great for elderly in this situation. Unfortunately my Nana suffered a broken hip and did not recover after surgery forcing us to put my Pap Pap in a retirement home. If they were still living in their home today, this is definitely something I would get for them.

      I am so glad that there is now this viable alternative for people.

    This would be a great phone to get for my parents. I'll keep in in mind.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Peace of mind for both children and their aging parents.

    Thanks for this post, Cheryl. It's wonderful that there these kinds of products available for when we eventually need them.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Exactly! I am so glad they are making products like these now.

  8. There is a huge need for this kind of services for seniors Cheryl. Glad you wrote about it. If even one old person is helped by it your article has made a difference.

    I like that it's budget friendly… something most of us will be looking for as seniors!

    • Geek Girl says:

      Budget friend is a must for seniors on a limited income. 🙂

    Is this the same Vtech that makes children's toys? Interesting. My mom would probably let this piece of equipment enter her house if it came in purple. No, she'd be delighted – I think.

    • Geek Girl says:

      Hey – I think you should ask them for colors. I would like colors. I just didn't think of it before you did. LOL

    Thanks. 🙂

    Yeah, it really is a great system.
