      When you’re hard of hearing, it’s easy to miss incoming calls. Luckily, you can buy a phone ringer and flasher that lights up when someone is calling you. I looked these up recently thanks to a call from Matthew, who lives in Dallas, Texas.

      When Matthew calls his grandmother, he often goes to voicemail because she can’t hear the phone ringing. He called the Kim Komando Show and asked if there was anything he could do to set up visual alerts for incoming calls.

      I told him, “Absolutely!” First, I pointed him towards the Serene Innovations Cell Phone Ringer-Flasher. This bad boy comes with a built-in USB port.

      If Matthew gets this, his grandma can pick between a few flashing patterns. She can even take advantage of the adjustable ring tones that distinguish calls from landlines and Skype. Its alerts are bright and hard to miss.

      Next, I recommended the VTECH Cordless Phone for Home device. It’s super easy to use and connects to Bluetooth headphones. That’s super helpful since Matthew’s grandma often uses noise-canceling headphones. It also has a speakerphone and a visual ringer that lights up, which is great for those with weakened hearing.
