Hi, Does anyone have any experience with the various video calling gadgets available? I want my mum to be able to see and chat to her friend of 70yrs, who lives 100miles away. They do try to chat once a week but mum's hearing seems variable despite new aids. I am planning to drive a day trip next year, fingers crossed they are well, but need mum to recognise her friend. I took her for a visit last year and it was a disaster - mum didn't recognise her friend as she had gone grey many years ago, although they had met many times when mum was more at herself. Her friend was brilliant with her, but I cried as I realised just what was happening to my mum. This sentimentality leads me to want to repeat the visit as a day trip. Mum likes sitting in the car and I am happy to drive. But I need mum to be well aware of how her friend looks now and I think her weekly phonecalls could be enhanced by a visual input too. It needs to be simple to use, my brother (blissfully still on the wagon and even becoming a person I could like again) is living with her but isn't tech savvy, mum's friend is a wonderfully intelligent lady who could learn quickly. Would any of you amazing people have tried this type of technology and have you any advice?
