My mil has brought up the topic and would like to get a tablet. She sees all of us using our cellphones and there have been times when I have sat with her to use it to do online shopping for clothing when she was in rehab.
She it not very tech savvy, and gets easily confused using her flip style cell phone and her cordless home phone. She did own a computer years ago which she used mainly for emails and to look up things on the internet occasionally.
I would love for her to have one, but I do not know if she will be able to catch on and remember what she was taught with her short term memory. I'm sure it could be great learning tool for memory with the games out there, but I know it will require alot of time to teach her how to use one. We will have to also rely on her caregivers to help in this department since I do not have that kind of time, also I can hear the phone already ringing for help when we are not there. I am in a quandary,
I still get phone calls for computer help from my mother who is in her late 60's and no memory problems and I just don't know if I can do this again without pulling all my hair out.
Has anyone had success in teaching someone with memory problems how to use a tablet or device?
Thanks in advance. :)
