My mom gave her new phone a good workout today. We practiced checking messages a couple of times. Then my brother called. Both my mom and dad were fascinated with the captions as they could read the words that my brother was saying. A little later, my mom called a neighbor and left a message. Then she called her sister and kept up with the whole conversation. I hung out for moral support, but she had it all under control. It was still tiring for her to concentrate that long, but it was so much easier to have the written words in front of her. The new phone has been so helpful already. I can see how it will give her more independence and enhance her relationships.
I Found God today as my mom enjoyed a new tool.
