For an elderly person, is the tablet a good move from a desk

Depends on how sharp his mind is still.
I have a small computer tech business, and work with the elderly from time to time. The biggest issue they face is remembering how to use the darn thing. I have sat down with some older folks, time after time, and they just can't remember what to do, no matter how many times they are shown how. I'm sorry, but that is just the facts. Someone who is 92 may not have the ability to use any kind of computer, ipad, tablet or anything else for that matter. So what should you do? Take him to a store that has the iPADs, and Tablets, and see if he shows any apptitude for understanding how to use it. He may be at the point in his life where you must face the fact that he can't do it.
