Have had family member suggest my elderly mom might benefit from having Alexa in home. Main reason because she is legally blind and not able to use Internet, etc. However, she does not have the Internet (and no desire for it at present - actually very resistant to the idea, long story). She has me look up information for her on the Internet A LOT. However, part of this is her wanting information, and part of it is wanting the interaction with me. Most of what I research for her would be beyond Alexa's capabilities. Not sure it would be worth getting Internet (would take persuading) to be able to use what services Alexa might provide. What services do you use, or think an elderly person would use, that would make having Alexa worthwhile? Cost of Internet would not be the main consideration (although a factor), if considerable benefit could be shown.
