Be your own Big Brother: Keeping an eye on Mum and Dad


Re: Nothing too extensive

My mum when she was in her 60's decided she needed a computer now at 76, she is quite comfortable with them, but the old man refused to have anything to do with computers. Then a few years ago we bought mum an iPad and he started playing a few games(dominos, sudoku etc.) ended up we had to buy him his own iPad for the sake of family harmony. Now it's not just games, it news, sport and he is learning more everyday, he is 79. Interesting thing he has a friend who is very ill and can't get out, but has an iPad, online dominos I believe is being experimented with, FaceTime is also useful.

Now they only watch TV when the iPads need recharging:-)
