Our house has had a serious upgrade in the technology department to help provide Lori with more security and independence. First, the amplified phone got replaced with a CapTel phone. This allows her to talk on the phone as the other side of the conversation is changed into captions that she can read. If you want to call her, you’ll need to dial 866-399-9050 first and then enter our phone number when prompted. Pretty cool stuff indeed.
The little box above the phone is part of the Silent Call system we installed, and it transmits a signal that the phone is ringing.
