A new iPad and online training have been a lifeline for Billie and her husband Laurie, also 80, who has Lewy Body Dementia. Billie has been supported by VMCH’s Carer Support Program as Laurie’s full-time carer for four years. The program is jointly-run by VMCH and YourLink – an organisation focussed on the digital inclusion of Australian seniors. 'This program is the most wonderful thing,' Billie says. 'You feel a bit left out these days… I don’t understand a lot of the modern things that are going on and I think this is going to open up so many different avenues for us. It’s an incredible program and I’m so grateful, I can’t tell you.' Weekly training sessions with YourLink tech gurus have helped Billie to connect with family interstate via FaceTime and catch up with fellow carers supported by VMCH via Zoom.
