Hello sanross,

Thank you for pointing out something that needs clarification.

You are correct. You will need to create an email account for your Mom in advance of setting an Amazon account for her.

I suggest creating a Gmail account, as it will make it easier to later add a Google Voice number to setup Alexa Calling for her if she doesn’t have a smartphone. 

You might want to look into the suggestion in a post below by Allynn, where we discuss a simple solution.  You could just set up a device on your own Amazon account and avoid all these steps.

Please review the tradeoffs we discuss and see which approach works better for you
