WHAT does teleCalm do?
Blocks Unwanted Calls
Telemarketers and scammers specialize in taking advantage of our loved ones. The most popular include Lotteries, Technical Support, and IRS scam calls. With the teleCalm app, the caregiver can create an Approved List of friends, family and other trusted people that need to call your loved one. All other callers are blocked. This isn’t one of those ineffective “Do Not Call lists”. This method of call blocking is guaranteed.
Let’s You Sleep
Loved ones often call in the middle of the night, thinking its daytime. Confusing day from night is a common symptom of Alzheimer’s and dementia. But, knowing this doesn’t help you get a good night’s sleep. The teleCalm Quiet Hours feature will remind your loved one of the late night call. The message will be in your own voice. Naturally, there’s an emergency override.
Restricts Outgoing Calls (Compulsive Shopping)
Shopping channels promote their products 24 x 7 with annual sales of billions. Our loved ones are easy prey. The teleCalm app allows the caregiver to define an Approved List of phone numbers the loved one is allowed to call. This can be the same list as Incoming Calls or it could be different. Calls to the shopping channels are eliminated.
Solves Phone Challenges
Seniors report issues with smartphones and other cell phones; buttons are too small, menus too complex, cell phones are easily lost. The teleCalm home phone service allows a loved one to use any landline phone they desire, even an older generation phone they preferred years ago!
Help Prevent Repetitive Dialing
Now Available in Beta
Repeat Dialing feature is now in beta! When activated, this feature will stop repeated calls to the same contact from your loved one. teleCalm Support can set it up for you. Just let us know the following:
- Number of Calls- 2, 3, 4, or 5 times
- Specified Period of Time-15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes
Notifications - You will also select if you want to receive notifications when your loved one starts placing repeated calls.
Text Notifications: If you chose, you may receive a text notification when your loved one starts to place repeated calls to the same contact.
What Does this Mean for My Loved One?
When the repeat dialing feature is active, and your loved one calls her friend Sue too many times, the call will not be completed. Your loved one instead will hear a message stating that Sue is not available, and to try back later.
