The One Button Radio - Now Back in Stock! Our best selling one button radio.

We all have a favourite radio station or a favourite radio DJ. The One Button Radio is a one button solution to get the radio station you love when you want, with no fuss.

All too often people with dementia can become bored, withdrawn, sad and depressed due to a lack of stimulation. Music is a simple, effective and fun way to reduce these feelings.

"It's a brilliant way for your loved one to listen to their favourite radio stations and music, in any room of the home, at a volume level that suits them." - Daphne, Professional Carer

Simply press the large button on the top to turn it on or off, removing any of the confusion associated with too many buttons. Easily use the large retro knobs to set the volume and station.

There is also a USB port, which can be used to play music of your choosing. Although please note, while the USB is connected, you cannot use the front plate to hide the buttons.

Comes with a 12-month warranty. Can be used with 6 x 1.5v C batteries

Note: Smaller frequency radio stations may occasionally need to be re-tuned. UK Power Supply

Expert Reviews

  • Barbara Stephens, Caregiver in Chief
    A versatile product for mild to moderate dementia

    Barbara Stephens, Caregiver in Chief

    This easy to use retro-style radio is universally popular with our customers. Pre-programmed to the radio station of choice, the one-button feature is straightforward to use for people with a multitude of difficulties. Common symptoms of dementia - vision impairment, coordination problems, difficulties with sequencing and judgement - make everyday tasks more challenging than they would otherwise be. The one-button radio helps to promote independence and autonomy. This product is also a music player: it has a usb port into which a flash drive can be inserted, personalised with a playlist of the person's favourite tunes. The sound quality is good and the volume and station settings are adjusted with familiar-looking knobs. A versatile product, highly recommended for people with mild to moderate dementia.

    An attractive, vintage design

    Mr. James Ashwell, Founder of Unforgettable

    I'm really pleased that this radio is VAT exempt. Dementia products are still more expensive than we'd like them to be, so it's important that our customers can make savings whenever possible - and a 20 per cent saving is not to be sniffed at. This radio has a lovely retro appearance, designed to prompt reminiscence and has a one button control. I would probably have used this with Mum in the early stages of the illness because the button may have become too fiddly for her later on. I particularly like the fact that the volume control and station setting can be locked so that nobody can fiddle with it. I could have set this to Radio 4 and Mum could have listened to the Archers all day long!

The radio is just what we wanted. Easy to set up and even easier for my mum to use. No fiddly buttons to press, and the radio is solid and stable so can't accidentally be knocked over.

Very easy for my mum to use. She hasn't found the hidden panel yet so just using the one button is ideal for her.

Questions & Answers

Sort by ASC
Is this a DAB digital radio or just AM & FM in which case will it not become out-dated soon?
Does it have an aerial connection on the back to enhance reception? Thanks
How long will the batteries last on this radio please
My dad is in the late stages of dementia and can be aggressive/destructive. I want to leave something in his room at the care home so he can listen to his favourite jazz. If I upload jazz on to a memory stick, will that work? We tried a normal CD player and he wrecked it and broke the CD in a week. Really at a loss what to do but want to help make him as happy as possible
I have set up the radio and tuned it to the station I want, but the volume even at its lowest is too loud. Can it be adjusted as I like to have it on low at night?
