Alternative means of communication for vulnerable person

Could someone please tell me if there is another means of communication that my elderly mother could use as her landline is still not working after 9-days. She is virtually housebound and has no relatives living near her. She is supposed to be a priority as the phone line is linked to the red button emergency system, but still the fault persists. A mobile is no use as the signal is too weak for even a phone call.
I’m very annoyed that BT haven’t made good on their priority fix despite being told on several occasions that she is edlerly, infirm and relies on the phone for getting help if needed.

Re: Alternative means of communication for vulnerable person

Thank you for offering to look into this for me John, however, at the moment I can't seem to reach you via the suggested route. When I click on your name I get taken to your page, not the option to contact the mods as you suggest. Could you please tell me if I'm doing something wrong, or a better way to get in touch?

Thanks

Thanks imjolly, 

I shall register her in a little bit. It doesn't unfortunately solve the current issue which is that she has no means of communication. I'm hoping to provide more details to JohnC so that he can investigate the problem.

I'm in full view, but the option doesn't appear on my laptop for some reason. Any other suggestions would be most welcome!
