My Dad is now living in a Long Term Care facility. He needs to have a phone, if for no other reason than to have it. He has serious dexterity issues so it is very important that the phone have large buttons and be easy to answer. My thought is a basic no frills cell, either to add to my verizon plan or a Trac phone or similar. I've done a bit of research and most reviews suggest the Alcatel 382G would be ideal, it costs between 18 and 30 dollars and comes with double minutes for life. I don't expect he will make many calls so adding to my verizon plan doesn't seem to me to be cost effective.
Any thoughts would be appreciated..

Criteria are:
Large buttons
Speed dial
Easy to answer
Loud ringer volume
Good speaker volume
