Amid our current pandemic, COVID-19, many nursing and assisted living homes have halted family visitation. This has resulted in an increased number of seniors experiencing loneliness. However, one way to stay in touch with the seniors in your life in a socially distanced way is to purchase them a phone. Some newer phones can be difficult for seniors to use, that is why here at Jethro we value keeping technology simple. We have recently launched our new easy to use SC490 4G phone. This phone will be great to keep in touch with loved ones during the pandemic. Keep reading to learn more about its features and why this might be the right phone for you or a loved one.
