Neo - The CareLine SN6187 and Panasonic systems, each connected to your phone line, can certainly work in the same location. They will operate independently of each other. Caution: If the Panasonic has an answering system, turn either the VTech or Panasonic answering device off. You only want one taking messages. Thanks!

I would say no. However, you could put it on a holder right next to the tub/shower so that you could still grab it if you fell. I'd put it low so that if you're in the floor you'd be able to reach the cord.

He should be able to push the button on the pendent to answer his calls.
If you use the receiver, it is like a regular phone and have to answer it as such. The pendent would be better if he shakes.

gotpickled - On the SN6187 - the handset must be picked up to make or answer a call. However, the handset does have a speakerphone features, so your relative can simply press the SPEAKERPHONE button, place the handset down, and have a conversation. Also, consider the SN6197, which has a base speakerphone as well. Thanks!
