Easiphone enlist PageOne’s services to deliver SMS reminders to the elderly, deaf, partially sighted and disabled
London, 15 May, 2012 – PageOne Communications, the UK’s leading provider of mobile messaging solutions to the public and enterprise sectors, has announced that Easiphone, supplier of specialist easy to use communications devices for the elderly, deaf, partially sighted and disabled has enlisted PageOne’s services to offer Telicare. Telicare is an innovative solution, providing users with invaluable resources such as SMS and voice reminders on behalf of family members concerned about the daily care needs of their vulnerable relatives.
With over 10 million people in the UK now aged over 65 Telicare offers a cost effective way for family members to ensure relatives receive important daily reminders for medication and medical appointments directly to their phone. The service works with any mobile or landline telephone and can be pre-set to deliver an easy to follow text or friendly voice message at set times, as many times a day as required. All of the reminder messages can be updated or adjusted from any internet-enabled PC by logging into a secure Telicare account.
“As more elderly people are cared for at home and families move apart, it’s becoming increasingly important for vulnerable members of society to be contactable at all times,” said Daniel Kerstein, Managing Director at Easiphone. “We’re delighted to be working with PageOne to deliver Telicare as it enables our existing range of products to do so much more.”
“Communication is a vital aspect of our lives and Easiphone is well known for meeting the needs of users who need a little bit of extra help using technology to keep in touch,” added Nigel Gray, Sales Director at PageOne. “As a cost effective solution, Telicare offers peace of mind to busy families who worry about their elderly loved ones.”
