B is in his 80’s and has Dementia but remains very active with the help of his wife, who is his main Carer.
Up until about 2 years ago, he could write, edit, send and receive documents and email on his PC.
Onset of Dementia and replacement of his old PC has left him deskilled and disorientated but wanting to retain the benefits of being online.
We did 6 sessions to work out a way of doing this. By the end of the 6th session we’d decided to change direction to using a tablet and voice search, focusing on his particular interests but being realistic about the need for ongoing help.
He is continuing sessions with us on a self-funding basis (transferring to his Self-Directed Support payments in due course). It’s helping him stay in touch with family, friends, Clubs etc, filling the gaps left by his memory loss and maintaining his interests e.g. digital photos.
Currently, the top 5 Project Groups at the Computer Clubs, in terms of popularity, are as follows:
