Help to fund a computer for disabled Senior lady
Organized by: Marti O'Brien
Hello...I am a disabled Senior woman living in an Assisted Care facility. I walk with a cane...due to severe Osteoarthritis in my pelvis and knees...I use a scooter which my facility has loaned me, (for use only in good weather,) for as long as I need it. I am appealing for help please, in purchasing a new computer. My computer is very old and on it's last leg. Also I am still using Windows XP...as I cannot afford to update. Without my computer I will be lost. I still have my mind though and use my computer as my , (almost) only means of communication. I do have a telephone, but only use it if I really have to, as I am nearly deaf. In emergencies I use my supplied, (part of my rent,) Help button. I use my computer to email my family and friends...do research on a book I am hoping to write...and to Google the things that I need to....My computer is my only entertainment, as I no longer can afford T.V. service anymore. My eyesight is good for short periods of time to read the books that I love, and also for a time on my computer....but I do not have the eyeglasses that I need, so make do with glasses from the dollar store. Due to other health issues. I tend to mostly isolate in my suite...so without my computer I would be very lonely, indeed. My suite is nice, but very expensive. I have no money for any extras whatsoever. There is no where else to move to that is suitable for my health needs...or affordable in my community..... I would be most grateful for any help given me. Thank you...and Best regards...
