Hi @kristin24 I'm turning 70 next week, and I understand how your mother is feeling during the Covid19. Depending on where a person lives, it can be a scary time. My wife and I live out in the country with 10 acres, so we're used to being safe in our own space.

Does your mother have a cell phone that receives texts? Does she own a computer that someone could teach her how to use? Senior centers have classes for people like her. I know that a lot of centers are closed right now, but they might know someone who could teach her at home.

If you see her often, you could be her secretary to read messages and respond for her.

Let us know if any of the things I've talked about would be useful.

Jim

Hello. No she does not have a cell phone but she does have a land line phone. She honestly don't want to learn the technology, my mom can't use a 'smart tv' so I can't keep it upstairs. My mom lives with my husband and I so she's not alone but it doesn't help her. I will see if she'd be interested in learning the computer…. Thank you
