Think loneliness isn’t a big deal? Think again. A recent study has shown that “people with heart failure who are socially isolated are more likely to be hospitalized or die prematurely than those who feel connected to others.”
Unfortunately, loneliness is pretty common among older adults. One of the best things we can do to help our aging family and friends is to give them a call. A regular “hello” can make a huge difference for someone who is feeling socially isolated. But for some, hearing loss may keep them from using the phone. That is where CaptionCall comes in. The CaptionCall phone offers smooth-scrolling captions and powerful amplification, making it easier for those with hearing loss to understand what people say over the phone. If you would like to reach out more to your older loved ones but they struggle using the phone, visit www.captioncall.com to learn how they can qualify for a no-cost CaptionCall phone.
