telemedicine in the elderly

Dear List

A friend of mine has asked about the following. If anybody has any ideas, please communicate them directly to her at the address shown below. Thank you.
I am wondering if you know or if not, if you could direct me to someone who
does, the types of sounds that might be good for the elderly in the use of
telemedicine devices in their home.

I am currently working on a project where we are going to set up a home monitor
and we are designing the sound for the incoming call to the patient's home. The
sound example they sent me is very high pitch and low volume, it does not seem
to me to be something that would be appropriate for the elderly population. Could you comment.
Thank you so much.
