Teaching my elderly parents to video call – A story of ups and downs

Teaching my elderly parents to video call – A story of ups and downs

Many years ago I left the family home for university and later settled down hundreds of miles away from my elderly parents. We kept in touch by phone calls and regular visits.

How Francesca has breakfast every day with her elderly parents despite being 5000 miles away

Seventeen years ago, Zdenka and Josef waved their daughter Francesca off on a plane to the USA. They were proud of her new life outside the Czech Republic and they visited each other as much as possible. Then as the years passed and it became more difficult to travel, Zdenka and Josef began to rely on regular phone contact and snail mail with their daughter. But this couldn’t replace seeing her and their new granddaughter. They particularly missed watching their…
