Consider a simple launcher (Android only)
With Android phones, you can change the “launcher”, which determines the appearance of all interfaces, such as app icons and font size.
Samsung phones have an alternative launcher called Easy Mode built-in. Go to toggle it Settings, Display, And select Easy conditions.
There are many alternative Android launchers that you can install and make the phone experience easier with several large icons. Simple Launcher, Big Launcher, and ridiculously named Baldphone are all worth a look.
Increase font size

On an Android phone: Go Settings, Display, And select Character size, Then drag the slider to adjust. You can also go there through it Settings, Availability, Then Character size.
On an iPhone: Go Settings, Display and brightness, Character size, And drag the slider. You can enter to go even bigger Settings, Availability, Then select Display and text size And tap Big text, Then drag the slider.
Ringtones and notifications
Having trouble hearing incoming calls or messages. Make sure the volume is loud enough, and choose the appropriate ringtones and alerts that are familiar to your loved one.
On an Android phone: Go Settings, Then Sound and vibration Caution to select sound, ringtone, and volume levels. You can also set Ring vibration And Circular vibration Dimensions with tap Vibration and hepatics.
On an iPhone: Go Settings, Then Words and Haptics, And select words with them. You can set the volume here, and it’s probably a good idea to toggle Vibrate in the ring E.g. There is one more feature for hearing Settings, General, Availability, Where you can toggle LED flash for caution. If you see that they accidentally reverse the silent mode on many things, which is easily done, you can also turn on Vibrate on Silent And Flash on Silent.
Set up phone tracking
