Easy-to-use picture cell phone for people with dementia/Alzheimer’s or intellectual disabilities.


A live and interactive discussion with the team from RAZ Mobility who have created an innovative one-touch dial picture cell phone that is designed specifically for individuals with dementia or intellectual disabilities. The phone is relentless in its focus on simplicity. It consists of one primary screen, and one screen only. Simply tap the picture of the person you wish to call. That’s it! Caregivers can manage the RAZ Memory Cell Phone remotely through a simple online portal. The portal is used to create and edit contacts, track the location of the phone/user, check the phone’s battery power or signal strength, prevent unwanted predatory robocalls, and more.
