Both parents are in an aged care village in seperate rooms about 60m apart. One has a landline while the other does not. As their care takes 85% of their pensions they cannot afford seperate landlines with the connection fee and ongoing line rental. Is it possible to have an extension phone line put in to the other so they both have the same number? This would be ideal due to costs restraints, and most people phoning in want to talk to both anyway. Both parents need a phone to talk with family and old friends.

Previously worked with a Telstra Partner however I am not a Telstra Employee, just a fellow customer helping when I can.
Thanks for the suggestion but the rooms are to far apart for a cordless phone. We have tried that with no luck. I now have a Telstra technician coming next week to (hopefully) connect an extension phone. Both rooms are already wired with phone jacks so he should be able to do it at the switchboard.
