What could help my mom make phone calls more easily?

My mom had a stroke 3 months ago. It has impaired her speech, so obviously she is having difficulty communicating. Being able to read and write comes and goes therefore, dialing a phone number is impossible. We bought her a speed dial phone, but most of her friends are not on it. Is there any piece of equipment that could help her call someone?

Don't know when you asked this question, but I thought I'd give an answer anyway.
FotoDialer is something I have found to be most useful. FotoDialer dials others by pressing a button next to the wallet-sized photo of the person you want to call. It connects into the existing analog phone so you don't need to purchase a new phone. Their are 24 numbers and it is easy to use. Dialing by photo seems like it would work wonders for your Mom. Good luck! http://www.PhotoDialer.com
