    SHOULD MY LOVED ONE BE PLACED IN AN ASSISTED COMPUTING FACILITY?

    For family members, it is often the most difficult and painful decision they will face: to accept that a loved one - a parent, a spouse, perhaps even a sibling - is technologically impaired and should no longer be allowed to live independently, or come near a computer or electronic device without direct supervision.

    Same clothes for a week,
    Happily addicted to the Web!
