    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • Finding The Right Technology For Seniors

    [caption id="attachment_9937" align="alignleft" width="340"]Does This Look Like You? Do you have trouble with your cell phone?[/caption]

    The population of Baby Boomers is growing, and so is the necessity for technology. These days, being off the grid is not an option, even for senior citizens. For the generation that didn’t grow up using computers, finding the right cell phone might be tricky. Smart phones are complicated; the buttons are small, the apps are many, and the possibilities are overwhelming. So what are some simpler options?

    If you’re looking for a phone that is straightforward, the Doro PhoneEasy 618 might be for you. It’s a durable flip-phone, tailor-made for users that want no muss, no fuss, just something that will allow them to stay up to date with their loved ones. It has larger, widely spaced buttons, and a hassle-free camera. To see if this is the phone you’ve been looking for, click here.

    Some senior citizens are trying to stay tech savvy and want a phone with more capabilities. The Jitterbug Touch 2 is an easy to use smart phone for those desiring a bit more than the phone above. It’s easier to figure out than most phones, and has features such as e-mail and touch screen; it is hearing aid compatible, and has a 5-star Urgent Response app. To read more about what this phone has to offer, click here.

    If you want to introduce more apps to your smart phone, here is a list of some of the top apps for senior citizens:

    The Fall Detector app monitors your movements and can detect if you have fallen or are not moving. If detected, your phone will alert a caregiver of your choice.

    Need help remembering to take your pills every day? This Pill Reminder app won’t let you forget.

    If you have trouble typing out a whole e-mail, Dragon Dictation will let you say your message out loud and type it out for you.

    Skype is a great way to visit with your family if you are unable to visit with them in person. Seeing your grandchildren is now just a button-push away.

    If any of these interest you, be sure to let us know! Your Home Mechanics here at Reilly Painting and Contracting can help you with any of your needs.
