    The phone is called Ameriphone RC remote control speakerphone. The phone number listed is 800 552 3368. They should be able to give you more info. I never really had to inquire about it due to someone at Shepherd's figured I needed it and had it ordered for me. Actually it's just like the phones they have in the rooms at Shepherds.

    Contact the phone company. In Massachusetts they're required to offer accessible phones for those that need it. They cost about $600 if I remember correctly, and the phone company provide it for free.

    Thanks Buffie, I'm gonna try to get one.
    Do you sound funny talking on it?
    I have a cheap speaker phone but everyone says I sound funny.

    I have that same phone, and it is wonderful! No you do not sound funny on it, because it is a high-quality speakerphone. Being a voice activated when someone calls in, and having pillow-switch or a puff-switch to be able to dial out, you can't ask for anything better. Depending on what state you're in (Texas has a form that you can fill out, that will get you one for free as long as you pay taxes on utilities)

    C4 here and I spend the night alone. However I have an ECU consisting of a Kincontrol and Unidialer. They are operated via a switch mounted on an arm. The switch is placed close to my chin at night so that I can trigger the device.

    Here in British Columbia there is a nonprofit society, Technology for Independent Living (TIL) that supplies the equipment on a loan basis indefinitely.

    How come you are never left alone after you are in bed?I have my hospital bed table a panasonic cordless phone [base 2 phones and intercom].I let my sis and ,mom to sleep after 11 pm.

    I have a live-in, who is a light sleeper and always within earshot. I have to admit I wouldn't like to be completely alone in the house over night.
