Amazon Echo and the Elderly

Amazon Echo and the Elderly

My mother-in-law is 95. Obviously there is much she cannot do. But I setup Amazon Echo for her. And she uses it constantly for..

-The weather
-The time
-Switching lights on and off (and dimming them)
-Switching the TV on and off (and changing volume)
-Placing phone calls
-Playing her favorite music
-Getting flight status information

Amazon Echo is an amazing tool for the elderly. I wish this got more publicity.

TIP: If you're a music lover get the version of the Echo with high fidelity speakers.
