JUNE DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE: CUES & CLUES
 

We all know a family member or friend who is having memory problems. Often, we don’t know how to help when someone is at a loss for words, repeats himself, forgets an appointment, or gets lost in a task. Sadly, some people pull away in their discomfort.

There are many ways we can understand what’s happening and keep things on trackwithout causing shame. Some common tools are ones we all use, say making a grocery or to-do list. Routines and consistency are also critical; for example, the keys should always be kept on the same hook.

COMPUTER GURU: TABLET COMPUTERS

Last month I wrote about laptop computers as an alternative to the traditional desktop variety. But there’s a third option: tablets. The earliest tablets were heavy and “typing” involved a chisel and rock instead of a keyboard. Editing was out of the question (I suppose you could use grout) and they were considered read-only devices.

Tablets use one of three operating systems:
1. Apple’s iOS (iPads and iPhones);
2. Google’s Android (Samsung, Asus, and a host of others); and

3. Microsoft’s Windows 10 (Surface).
