Pick-up walker is a metallic frame
It has four-legs with rubber tips
It is light and comfortable to use
While using it would be lift and moved forward with each step
It would provide maximum assistance to maintain body balance
It is easier to use then cane stick
However, this style of walker does require some degree of upper body strength and cognitive ability to use safely
It would be given bit pressure on upper arms
Risk of falling always involved if someone would not able to handle or control properly.

How can we stop picking up other people's conversation on the Binatone 150 walked talkie?

You must match the frequency (Channel) and ADD a tone (code) to both radios. The tone mutes the speaker until the correct one is received. You may have to try more than one tone (code). I do radios often for older people because the radio buttons are small and instructions are typically poor. I use radios as intercoms myself, but I am in the US, so I use a different brand. Ask around, you may find a helpful person.

How do I prolong the light on the phone ie when you pick it up and press any button the light dims then goes out not very good with an older person,

OK, this is set to 15, 30 45 seconds or 1 or 2 minutes. I guess you must have set to 15 seconds. You can find this in:
1. Settings
2. Display
3. Sleep> From here change it to a higher number, probably 45 seconds or maybe over a minute.
This instructions are for Androids phone, is tottaly different for iPhones.

Additional handsets will pick up calls from mobile phone but not landline calls

Try registering your older handsets with your new base station per the manuals instructions. Also your new base station might be transmitting on a different frequency or some other coded transmission is not recognized by your old handsets. Did the manufacture say the older handsets would work with the new system? They might not even if they did say so.

I have an old bed frame in great condition that we do not use any more and would like to donate it. Can anyone suggest a good place to donate used bed frames?

Donating old bed frames is a great idea. You should look locally for a non-profit organization. You can also call the Salvation Army; they will come and pick the bed frame up. Charities such as Goodwill are also a good option; however you would have to deliver the bed frame yourself.

Question regarding how to process focus bracket pictures

Focus bracketing is mostly used like exposure bracketing, in a situation where you are unsure of the focus or in tricky situation. You focus normally and the camera will take 3/5/7 shots depending on the camera and you can then examine the shots on a computer and pick the best one. If you want to "blend" the pictures together, that is called focus stacking and is hard to do unless you use specialized software such as Helicon Focus:
Even with such software, you have to make sure the subject is perfectly still from frame to frame, so a tripod would normally be required.
Also, if all you want to do is get a large amount of the scene in focus, you do not need focus bracketing and focus stacking, simply select a small aperture (large f-stop) and that will increase you depth of field considerably.
