Old People Phones

My grandparents are old. And they suck at electronics. Hard

Mom got them a cell phone about 400 years ago for emergencies and travel and all that crap. Well the battery is now completely dead and the phone is now worthless.

Mom currently has them as a companion on a Verizon plan. She doesn't want to do the 2 years on the contract just for them, and she thinks the Verizon phones are too complicated for them.

She wants to do a jitterbug deal, because their phones are targeted at old people.

Is this the right thing? What are other people doing for elderly needing a cell phone?

TIA

After taking a look, get them a Jitterbug.
