California Phones: Keeping You Connected | San Francisco Village


Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

California Phones: Keeping You Connected

8/14/2018 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM PT

Do you have difficulty hearing on a standard telephone or difficulty getting to the telephone before it stops ringing? Do you have difficulty seeing the numbers on a standard telephone, dialing telephone numbers, or remembering telephone numbers? Do people have difficulty hearing or understanding you on the telephone? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you can benefit from the specialized telephone equipment of the California Telephone Access Program (CTAP).
Every day, specialized California Phones from the California Telephone Access Program (CTAP) enable over half a million Californians to stay connected. There's a California Phone for every need. For example, there are amplified phones that make it easier to hear conversations, big button phones that are easier to dial, phones with lights that flash for incoming calls, and convenient portable phones. CTAP provides free specialized phones and accessories for your mobile phone to all qualified Californians. There is no age or income requirement. Learn more about the available assistant technology and this state funded program.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
