Remote Manage provides caregivers the unprecedented ability to remotely manage ALL aspects of their senior’s cell phone through a simple app. The app are used by the caregiver to create and edit contacts, send the senior reminders, set up hours during which the senior cannot place calls, track the location of the phone/user, check the phone’s battery power or signal strength, select certain options, such as the option to disable the power button or restrict incoming calls to contacts, preventing unwanted predatory robocalls, and much more. Remote Manage can be used by caregivers from anywhere in the United States or Canada; changes made with Remote Manage are reflected on the RAZ Memory Cell Phone right away.
Remote Manage allows one caregiver to manage multiple RAZ Memory Cell Phones. Thus, for example, a daughter can manage phones for two parents. And it allows multiple caregivers to manage one RAZ Memory Cell Phone. For example, two adult siblings can manage their mother’s RAZ Memory Cell Phone.
In addition to voice calls, the RAZ Memory Cell Phone now supports video calls. Any contact can easily video call the senior using the RAZ Care app. From the senior’s point of view, the incoming video call looks just like a regular phone call: the senior simply taps “Answer” to start the video session. The senior does not have to tap on any links or open any apps. In fact, there is no additional complexity added to the user experience at all!
Video calls allow a more intimate connection between the senior and the family member, which may help reduce loneliness. According to the National Institute on Aging the health risks of prolonged loneliness is equivalent to smoking 15 cigarettes a day! If nothing else, seeing the faces of family members, such as children and grandchildren, will make the senior feel better.
To be clear, the RAZ Memory Cell Phone initiates and receives voice calls, and can receive, but not initiate, video calls.
The RAZ Memory Cell Phone only has one screen. The user cannot exit this environment.
Make calls by touching pictures. Contact names are shown below pictures. Pictures and names are perfect for individuals with memory loss.
By default, the RAZ Memory Phone displays up to six pictures of contacts. If memory loss is more severe, the phone can display only one or two pictures.
There is an option to expand to thirty pictures of contacts. The user must scroll to access the additional contacts.
When the phone rings, two big buttons will appear. A green one that says “Answer” and a red one that says, “Hang up”. If the caller is a contact, a large picture and name of the caller will be displayed.
Prevent your senior with dementia from calling specified contacts during certain hours of the day, such as in the middle of the night.
Set reminders that will appear as sticky notes on the RAZ Memory Cell Phone, with the option to also create audio reminders.
Caregiver can receive a text message when the battery of the RAZ Memory Cell Phone is less than a specified amount.
Incoming calls will be answered automatically, without pressing “Answer”.
To save battery, display will go dark after 2 minutes, and wake up with movement.
When battery is low, senior will receive a reminder to charge.
If predatory robocalls calls are a concern, block incoming calls from anyone other than contacts and selected numbers.
Track your loved-one’s location by tracking the phone at no additional cost. The location will be updated every fifteen minutes.
The home screen is always on and the phone ready to use. It will never fall asleep and never lock. The user will not have to remember a passcode.

Just press the Emergency button at the top of the RAZ Memory Cell Phone’s screen and connect to a highly trained agent to help the senior through their problem. The agent will have access to the senior’s location and health condition(s). Also, when a call is placed to the RAZ Emergency Service, text messages will be sent to designated caregivers, providing caregivers the opportunity to interact directly with the agent to assess the nature of the emergency and provide input. This service provides seniors the comfort that they can call for help without necessarily having a rescue vehicle dispatched to their residence!
At $99.99 per year with no activation fee, or $9.99 per month with an activation fee of $20, the RAZ Emergency Service costs far less than any comparable service!
Respond more quickly to your senior’s emergencies. When your senior calls 911, receive a text message alerting you to the call. Up to 3 people can receive the 911 text message alert. The RAZ Alert service is available even if you do not subscribe to the RAZ Emergency Service, and is available at no additional cost through the RAZ Care app.
Imagined emergencies and repetitive 911 calling is all too common for people with dementia. The RAZ Emergency Service (see above) is the solution! Our agents know that many of our customers suffer from memory loss and will determine whether to contact 911 guided by this knowledge. Also, text messages will be sent to designated caregivers, providing caregivers the opportunity to cancel the emergency call so that 911 is not contacted.
The RAZ Emergency Service prevents 95% of unnecessary 911 calls.
If you believe that your senior may be experiencing an emergency, activate the Auto Answer feature in the RAZ Care app. When you call, the RAZ Memory Cell Phone will answer automatically after 2 or 3 rings and go to speakerphone. You can then ask your senior if they are alright and need help. This is a great safety feature if your senior has fallen, or is experiencing another emergency, and can’t get to the phone! Available at no cost and activated through the RAZ Care app.
Many seniors with cognitive decline also experience low vision or hand tremors. Diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy lead to vision loss; Parkinson’s disease and strokes can lead to hand tremors. If your senior suffers from vision loss, hand tremors, or arthritis, they can benefit from our special low vision or tremor mode. With this mode activated, all the contact pictures are replaced with much larger icons, which can be customized in whatever color scheme helps improve the senior’s vision the most. Instead of up to six contacts per page, this mode supports only two, making them much easier for those with hand tremors or vision loss to both see and tap. The emergency button, Answer button, and Hang-up buttons are also much larger.

Some seniors have difficulty charging their phone with a charging cable. Inserting the cable “head” into the phone requires a level of coordination they no longer have. Also, seeing the charging stand next to their bed can help them remember to charge their phone. Simply place the RAZ Memory Cell Phone on the charging stand and the phone will charge!
The RAZ Memory Cell Phone is offered for free to eligible consumers by various state government programs. These programs offer specialized telecommunications equipment, such as the RAZ Memory Cell Phone, to consumers with disabilities. Program requirements vary and can include an income requirement.
