Hi folks

I have an in-law with early stages of temporal lobe dementia. She lives at home alone and is still pretty independent but among other things she is really struggling with anything to do with times and dates. Diaries and the like are increasingly hard to manage. I am wondering about a technological aid. She has a WIFI network at her home. If there was a way I could set up a MONITOR on the wall that could display say a diary or calendar that I could update and change remotely and she could just consult that, it could be a big help. I guess I'd need a PC set up there to run the display, and then connect to that over the internet and control what it shows. But I really don't know what the best way is to set up something like that. In an ideal world there'd be no PC there, just a display. Either way it needs to be something I initiate and control as needed, so she doesn't have to do anything like send a remote assistance request, because she can't really manage that.

Any thoughts??

I don't have any good ideas on the display. As long as there is also a computer the display could be the screen or monitor or second monitor.

You could control the computer using something like LogMein, UltraVNC or TeamViewer. I've tried the latter two and continue to use TeamViewer.
