I'm looking for cordless phone handsets for an elderly person. This may seem like a trivial thing to you, but it isn't to an elderly person. When the call is finished, they have to press a "red button" to actually terminate the call, before placing the handset back in the cradle. This is an insurmountable problem. 9 out of 10 times they completely forget to press that blasted "red button", so the call remains connected while the handset is sitting in the cradle. As a result, the person then becomes uncontactable. This is a person with short term memory and other issues, so when they become uncontactable it's panic stations.
Surely there must be a brand of handset that take care of this very problem. Surely this is a very common problem with the elderly. But all the cordless handsets I can find all have the same "red button" that must be pressed to terminate a call.... It's bizarre. On MOBILE phones ("Cell phones" to you Americans) the call is terminated the moment either side hangs up, but on a LANDLINE the participants must actually hang up, and on a cordless handset that appears to be done by a "red button" most of the time.
