“My clients are usually elderly and often just want a computer for day-to-day activities like sending emails. If they’re nervous of technology, I suggest GuideConnect. I just feel that GuideConnect is ideal for my clients who are older, learning to cope with sight loss and just want simple computer access. Sending emails to friends, writing their own letters and searching the internet helps them feel positive, involved and less lonely.”
