How to Stop Repeated Phone Calls
teleCalm’s Repeat Dialing feature can save a lot of frustration!
Activate the repeat dialing feature for dementia to stop compulsive and repeated calls.
Simply customize your preferences in the teleCalm Caregiver App.
- Number of Calls- 2, 3, 4, or 5 times
- Within a Specified Period of Time-15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes
- Notifications- Enable to receive a text message when your loved one starts placing repeated calls.
To choose the best settings, think about your loved one’s repeat dialing habits. When your loved one starts calling over and over again, how long does it last? How often do they call?
For example, suppose your loved one tends to call 3 or 4 times for about half an hour, and then they stop. You may want to select 3 times in a 30-minute window.
About Repeat Dial Notifications
You can optionally receive text message notifications to your mobile phone when your loved one starts to place repeated calls.
How does the Repeat Dialing feature affect my loved one?
teleCalm provides a gentle message to your loved one if they start compulsive calling.
For example, suppose that you’ve activated the teleCalm Repeat Dialing feature for your mom. Then your mom starts calling her friend Sue over and over again. teleCalm will notice your mom’s compulsive behavior. Instead of completing the call to your mom’s friend, teleCalm will automatically play a message to your mom stating that her friend Sue is not available. After a while, your mom will stop trying to call Sue. teleCalm will notice that the repeat calling behavior is over. At this point, if your mom tries to call her friend Sue, teleCalm will attempt to complete the call.
