I have an upcoming trip to the Los Angeles area that promises to be an eye-opening experience. I’m attending the one-day Conference on Technology and Aging on Friday, October 30, as I’ve been asked to participate in a panel about consumer products that help seniors live better, more fulfilling lives.
How can a cell phone fill that tall order For me, it’s about providing convenience and peace-of-mind at a stage of life when it’s most needed. For many aged 55 and over, the golden years are a time to simplify and to slow down and enjoy the fruits of a lifetime of labor. For some, that may mean downsizing and travel, while for others it may also mean time to care for elderly parents or at the opposite end of the spectrum?grandchildren.
Whatever the case may be, an easy-to-use cell phone accompanied by a simple, straightforward calling plan ensures that mature adults can stay in touch with the people that matter most, without excess worry about cost and accessibility.
The 55+ crowd is an integral part of our society, and at Consumer Cellular, we’re continuing to explore how we can enhance the tools for better day-to-day living. For now, we partner with AARP and provide flexible, simple phone plans. And, we’ve just introduced the new Doro PhoneEasy phones specially designed for seniors.
I’m looking forward to learning about how the latest advancements in science, technology and medicine are contributing to a higher quality of life for our aging population, and I think I’ll come away from the conference with more ideas on how Consumer Cellular can continue being a valuable resource for this group.
