Our Daughter has problems with dexterity and accessing stuff on zoom it is making her life much more fun and means she doesn’t have to put up with us oldies all the time. As I have said, the 3 staff we have here are exceptional. As an example she did cooking with Maria today and couldn’t have done the program otherwise. Thanks again
