Internet, tablet and smartphone systems such as GrandPad, a simplified tablet for older adults ... are emerging to help with care and staving off isolation.

Such an interesting product ... the company has put in an amazing amount of effort to ensure that the tablet works for people over 75.

I'd forgotten all about the GrandPad's Facebook-feed feature and took photos at a recent auto show. My dad called to tell me he liked the pictures I'd taken of the new Bugatti on display, and I suddenly realized he was being included in my day. It was amazing, given how little my dad understands technology, that he enjoyed using this device.
