My Dad is 86, has had a heart attack, 2 strokes, 2 bypass surgeries and recently had a pacemaker inserted. Like many his age he has not integrated 21st century technology into his lifestyle â€¦ until now. He was recently sent a scale by his healthcare provider that he assembled and plugged into a phone jack. Now twice a day he steps on the scale which asks him several questions and makes comments to him about his weight, then transmits this info to a nurse who then contacts his doctor with an update if necessary. Now of course heâ€™s jazzed about technology again and is very intrigued by â€œThese new web tools.â€ Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks. (Dad, not that I’m actually comparing you to an old dog – you would be a young vital dog ; ) ).
Learning is messy at any age!
