I work for a charity based in Chelmsford, we have been contacted by a lady on behalf of her 92 year old neighbour who lives in West Mersea. The lady is deaf and has very poor eyesight.
She uses a Geemarc Screenphone to communicate using Text Relay.
Her phone has broken, they are no longer made and now she is cut off from her family. I have called the company and the phone is out of stock and no longer manufactured. New generation texting via a smart phone or tablet is the only suggestion.
At 92 this lady is unable to move over to the New Generation Text service. It is this specific phone she needs, has anyone got one they no longer use? I have tried eBay.
It is a very specific phone that she needs and it is very old technology.
Any help greatly received, it really is something money cannot buy.
The charity I work for is Hearing Help Essex if you wanted to check I was genuine:
