The use of electronic tablet technology at a Victorian respite facility is helping client, Mary Bongailas, connect with her homeland and even strengthen her religious beliefs.
When Ms Bongailas was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease six years ago, her son, Martin, decided to retire early to care for her.
Martin supports her with personal care (he even dyes her hair!), and performs all the household tasks. He also finds time to take his mum to bingo, one of her favourite pastimes – leaving him with little time for himself.
