Device Tutorials for Caregivers

Using a tablet to play music, reminisce with images and videos, or communicate with loved ones can significantly enhance quality of life for caregivers and care recipients. However, using new technology can be intimidating and potentially frustrating, especially when you are a caregiver and have a long list of daily responsibilities.

To avoid frustration and potentially stressful situations, we recommend familiarizing yourself with important features before incorporating technology into your care routine. To help busy caregivers learn at their own pace, we've built a library of free training videos.

Our resources our currently limited to the iPad, but we plan on adding free videos for additional devices in the future.
