We test every handset on the market to find the very best models.


For many elderly people, their home phone represents a lifeline to the outside world. From keeping in touch with friends and family to having something to use in an emergency, these devices are so important. While mobiles can be fiddly and complicated to get to grips with, landline phones are simple and easy to use.

However, not all home phones are ideally suited to older users. Some have buttons which might be too small to work properly, while others can be a little on the quiet side. Thankfully, there are a number of models on the market which have been specially designed with the elderly in mind. These often come with larger buttons, along with a volume booster mode for the hard-of-hearing.

To help you find your next home phone, our team of experts have put together the following list of the top ten best models for the elderly. They all offer excellent sound quality, and many of them include special features. Most importantly, they are all extremely easy to use and take just a few minutes to set up. So, read on to discover our top picks!

What we look for to find the best home phones:


  • Sound Quality
    Every handset on our Top 10 has undergone extensive checks for excellent audio quality.
  • Ease-of-Use
    We have a panel of experts who test every multiroom speaker to find out how easy they are to set up and use.
  • Build & Reliability
    We conduct an extensive survey throughout the year to find out which models are the most reliable.
