Quote from Volunteer

"After Mary's* first introduction to the computer, she tearfully looked at me and said that his had opened a whole new world for her.  Today, Mary is a whiz on the computer and it is her main means of communications, shopping, reading news, etc..  Mary uses the mouse and a small bit of on-screen keyboard work.  She uses other's assistance to do typing for her."

-Cyndy  A Vosburgh, Faith in Action Volunteer.  Cyndy does home visits with Mary, an ALS patient, which include computer work (correspondence, appointment planning,etc.)  She also coordinates a daily food program for Mary*.

*The care receiver's name has been changed.
